Editorial policy for cancer information
The Canadian Cancer Society’s goal is to provide up-to-date and accurate information that’s easy to read and understand. We’ve been providing Canadians with information about cancer since we were first formed in 1938. Today, we offer information online, in print and by telephone.
Taking action against all cancers
The latest Canadian Cancer Statistics report found that of all newly diagnosed cancers in 2017, half are expected to be lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers. Learn what you can do to reduce the burden of cancer.
