Issues you can act on

Our advocacy campaigns cover many issues vital to cancer patients and their families – from preventing cancer, to accessing high-quality treatment, to improving palliative care, to more support for family caregivers.

We’ve won many battles, but there’s still a way to go. And our campaigns are most successful when you get involved! We need your help to improve the lives of those living with and beyond cancer.

The Canadian Cancer Society in Nova Scotia recognizes the financial burden of cancer and its effects on overall health. The Nova Scotia Division of the Canadian Cancer Society is currently advocating the Provincial Government to enable more Nova Scotian’s to quality for support from the Boarding Transportation and Ostomy Program (BTO).

You can help by talking to people in your community about the BTO Program.
