Our research is making an impact

Research funded by the Canadian Cancer Society is making a difference. In 2015 we invested over $42 million in research. This has allowed our researchers to influence scientific knowledge, program delivery, government policy and clinical practice. The discoveries our researchers make will help us prevent cancer, raise survival rates and enhance quality of life.
