Volunteer at a Society office
Community offices are at the heart of planning and implementing Society fundraising activities, delivering services, promoting healthy public policies and educating the public about cancer and prevention. Society offices support community work by delivering programs and support materials and engaging in advocacy work with the government.
Office volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day support of community office teams. Volunteers often work on a regular basis and provide assistance with data entry, filing, photocopying and posting mail. Additional tasks can include processing donations, preparing receipts, greeting the public, answering phones, providing information and pitching in with events and projects.
The Canadian Cancer Society operates two offices in the province, and also a Transportation Service office.

I was in total shock when I heard the diagnosis of cancer. Cancer to me was an adult’s disease. Being a 13-year-old teenager, it certainly wasn’t even on my radar.
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.
