What you can do

Changing public policy is one of the most effective tools for preventing cancer and helping those living with and beyond cancer. The best way to change public policy is for Canadians to speak up and make our collective voices heard.


There are lots of ways you can advocate, no matter how much time you have to give:


I have 5 minutes

Sign a petition, send a tweet or post on Facebook – we have tools to help you use your social media connections to quickly lend your voice to the cause.

I have 30 minutes

Write a letter or make a phone call to your federal, provincial or municipal elected official. They want your vote, so let them know what they need to do to get it. Consider doing the same to your local newspaper – let them know how passionate you are!

I have several hours or days

Consider becoming a Canadian Cancer Society volunteer and work with our advocacy teams to make a difference in your community, your province or across the country.
