Cops for Cancer

Cops for Cancer is a program launched in partnership between first responders across the country and the Canadian Cancer Society, to support children and families affected by childhood cancer.

The inception of this program began with one police officer and has been growing rapidly amongst communities across Canada. Since 1997, the program has raised over $42 million to fund life-saving pediatric cancer research and support programs. As one of the largest funders of pediatric cancer research in Canada, it has contributed to pediatric cancer survival rates which have increased from 71% in the 1980s to over 83% today.
