Canadian Cancer Society Nationwide Strategic Plan 2010-2015

In March 2010, board of directors approved the Nationwide Strategic Plan 2010–15: The Fight for Life. Capitalizing on the Society’s history and reputation, the nationwide strategic plan builds on our strengths in programs, policy and research to advance progress in cancer control from prevention to end of life.

Our Nationwide Strategic Plan 2010–15 is bold and ambitious. With the full engagement of Canadians, donors, volunteers and staff, the Society will enable Canadians to deter, defeat and defy cancers and contribute to the:

  • reduction of cancer incidence rates for Canadians
  • reduction of cancer mortality rates for Canadians
  • enhancement of quality of life for Canadians living with and beyond cancer
