    Thank you!

    The Durham Region Community Office is grateful for the support of our community in making a difference in the fight against cancer.

    We invite you to watch our latest inspiring video called  “Our Story – Canadian Cancer Society”. This video shows why the Canadian Cancer Society is the cancer charity of choice for Canadians -- to donate, volunteer and work. For over 75 years, we've funded the best cancer research in the country. We're finding new ways to prevent cancer, and we continue to support and improve the lives of those living with cancer.

  • Volunteer opportunities

    We have many exciting volunteer opportunities at the Durham Region Community Office! Contact us today to see what positions would be a great fit, for example, event planning, client transportation, office work, outreach presentations or peer support. We look forward to hearing from you! Contact us at durham@ontario.cancer.ca or 1 800 668-7830.

    Interested in being a volunteer driver with our Wheels of Hope Program? We are currently looking for people interested in driving people who live in Durham to cancer-related care. Each year, the Society provides transportation to hundreds of local residents. This service could not be provided without the help of volunteer drivers who take on the responsibility of making sure patients get to and from treatments, and these drivers can receive mileage reimbursement. Volunteers are asked to be available to drive one day a week. You can volunteer to drive locally and to downtown Toronto. A valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and a reliable vehicle are required. Those interested in this opportunity or finding out about other volunteer opportunities with the Canadian Cancer Society please contact us at 1-800-668-7830 or durham@ontario.cancer.ca.
