Cops for Cancer
Cops for Cancer was created from the idea of one man and has grown into an inspirational force engaging police officers and other emergency services and their communities in the fight against cancer. Since it began in 1994, Cops for Cancer has raised more than $50.4 million.
Police and emergency services personnel continue to help drive the Cops for Cancer program by organizing events throughout the province. The events range from head shaves to participating in bike rides such as Pedal for Hope to organizing various school-based fundraising activities.

Establishing a national caregivers strategy
The Canadian Cancer Society is actively lobbying the federal government to establish a national caregivers strategy to ensure there is more financial support for this important group of people.
