Daffodil Month is a national fundraising campaign of the Canadian Cancer Society. During April, Society volunteers raise vital funds for the fight against cancer.

Money raised during Daffodil Month helps local patients living with cancer and their families. Donations fund life-saving research, support services and other important work that means fewer Canadians will be touched by the disease.

Our volunteers sell fresh daffodils in some communities, ask people to make a donation and wear a daffodil pin throughout the month and canvass neighbourhoods door to door to collect donations.

Daffodil Month stories


“It has been easy to support the Canadian Cancer Society. Each one of us has been personally touched in some manner by cancer.”


“Volunteering during Daffodil Month is an incredibly rewarding experience, whether you have been touched by cancer or not.”


“I think my mother would be proud of the work I’m doing that is making a positive change in people’s lives.”

Fresh cut flowers

To some, the daffodil is just a flower. For us, it is a symbol of strength and courage. It says we will not give up. It says we will fight against cancer and we will win.

When you buy flowers, you’re supporting Canadians living with cancer and helping us fund research to fight all cancers for all Canadians in all communities.
