Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships. Volunteers are critical to our accomplishments and we wouldn’t be able to support, inform and empower those touched by cancer without you.
When you join our nationwide team, you have the combined strength of volunteers from across the country standing behind you to help you make a difference in someone’s life.
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer for Daffodil Month
Volunteers are urgently needed in April. When you volunteer just a few hours of your time during Daffodil Month, you help save lives and support people who are living with cancer. Volunteering is a small gesture that makes an enormous difference.
CIBC Run for the Cure
Planning and organizing the Run takes time, passion and creative thinking. In partnership with volunteers and staff, you could be part of something truly extraordinary in your community. Be a part of this national event where success depends on local leadership. With your community insight, you will raise awareness, encourage participation, and drive fundraising results. This year's Run is on October 6, 2019.
Relay For Life
Cancer changes everything. So can you. Volunteer on your own or with your friends and family at a Relay For Life, or learn how to register or join a team.
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.
Reducing the burden of cancer
Canadians can help CCS fund the best research and support people living with cancer by donating and volunteering.
