Help prevent cancer and be an advocate

Together we can make Canada a healthy place to live. By sharing life-saving prevention messages with our local communities. By telling lawmakers why increased cancer research funding is important to us. Working together, we can create social and political change that will help control cancer in Canada.

To help move the fight forward, there are a number of ways you can help spread the word and take action.

Promote healthy living and risk reduction messages by distributing materials and making presentations to groups and organizations in your community. Work with local media to communicate prevention-related messages through public service announcements and other materials. Write letters to different levels of government, encourage communication with local politicians to help influence healthy policy development and participate in public forums.

Become a community action volunteer

Our community action volunteers help reduce the risk of cancer by educating people about healthy lifestyle choices and the importance of screening and early detection.  Whether it’s by distributing posters, having a display or presentation at your workplace, sharing information in a newsletter or hosting a presentation, you provide the enthusiasm and we will help bring your idea to life. 

Spread the word using social media

Post about your experiences and the issues you are care about – help us best represent those touched by cancer when we advocate for change. Spark discussion on issues that we are advocating for – comment and provide us with feedback so we can fight on your behalf.

Use the hashtag #vote4health when advocating for us and to increase awareness on important cancer issues.
