We do this by:
- taking a stand on important cancer issues
- raising Canadians’ awareness and understanding about these issues
- influencing government to pass public policies that will help prevent cancer and help people living with cancer
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that working with government and legislators to bring about healthy public policies is a vital part of the fight against cancer.
