The Canadian Cancer Society supports community right to know. We believe people have the right to know if they are being exposed to substances that are carcinogens.
Community right to know
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that as community members, workers and consumers, we all have the right:

- to make informed decisions affecting our health
That is why we support the principle of community right to know.
