About our research
Investing in the best research has led to tremendous progress against cancer. We know more about what causes cancer, how it develops, how best to treat it and how we can improve the quality of life of people living with cancer. Today, over 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis. In the 1940s, survival was about 25%.
In 2015–2016, the Canadian Cancer Society funded $44 million in leading-edge research supporting more than 350 projects across the country, thanks to our donors. As the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada, we are leading the fight against cancer.

My favourite thing about Camp Goodtime is being able to hang out with other kids who have survived cancer. They know what is going on in your life and can help you get through it.
