SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
Tobacco control – what we’re fighting for right now
The Canadian Cancer Society BC and Yukon advocates for an investment in cancer prevention. We encourage the BC Government to protect Canadians from cancer-causing substances, such as tobacco smoke, and generate public policies that make healthy living possible.
The Society is advocating for stronger provincial tobacco control regulation in outdoor public places, such as outdoor patios of bars and restaurants, and on parks playgrounds and beaches.
Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
