As Canada’s longest standing cancer charity, we have been making a difference in the lives of Canadians since 1938. The Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
We are working hard to:
- Save lives. Our researchers continue to discover new information that is transforming diagnosis and treatment.
- Stop cancer before it starts. Our researchers are finding ways to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that protect the public.
- Ensure no one facing cancer is alone by offering services and support to those living with cancer.
- Empower Canadians with information on cancer to help them make informed choices about their health.
