Option to Give
The Option to Give program is an innovative form of corporate giving, which partners the TSX (Toronto Stock Exchange) with a number of health charities across the country. Companies launching an initial public offering (IPO) are able to grant stock options to one of the participating charities, including the Canadian Cancer Society.
With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, the support from the investment community has never been more important. By choosing our organization, companies demonstrate their commitment to creating a future where no one fears cancer.

Thank you to these companies for choosing the Canadian Cancer Society!
I was in total shock when I heard the diagnosis of cancer. Cancer to me was an adult’s disease. Being a 13-year-old teenager, it certainly wasn’t even on my radar.
What’s the lifetime risk of getting cancer?
The latest Canadian Cancer Statistics report shows about half of Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
