Volunteer opportunities & messages

Use your cancer experience to help others.

Peer support volunteers know what it’s like to live with cancer because they are cancer survivors or were caregivers to someone with cancer. Through CancerConnection, our nationwide telephone support program, peer support volunteers offer encouragement, compassion and practical support – from diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond – to the person living with cancer and their family. 

The Society also offers adult support groups in many communities across Canada. The types of groups available in each area may vary. Some groups are specific to one type of cancer, while others may offer general support for people living with cancer. 

Peer support volunteers are matched based on factors such as type of cancer, sex, treatment, side effects, relationship to the person who is diagnosed, age and family situation. All volunteers receive extensive training and ongoing support.


The Canadian Cancer Society is here to help people living with cancer. If you’ve been through cancer, either as a survivor or caregiver, you can offer hope and support to others. As a trained volunteer, you will draw upon your own cancer experience to offer encouragement, compassion and helpful information to adults living with cancer and those caring for a loved one with cancer.


Last year (2011 – 2012) in Ontario, 600 volunteers supported 2,660 people. If you’d like to turn your cancer experience into hope for others.


Contact Debbie Marson, Volunteer Engagement Coordinator - 705-472-9072x3737  - dmarson@ontario.cancer.ca for information on how to become a Peer To Peer Support Volunteer.
