Healthy living events

The Canadian Cancer Society supports theme awareness periods and Spice up Your Life events in Saskatchewan to promote healthy living and will arrange for presentations on cancer-related topics (resources permitting) on request.

  • Theme awareness periods

    Women's Cancer Awareness Month

    This year's Women's Cancer Awareness Month ambassador is Canadian curling champion Amber Holland who hails from Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

  • Spice Up Your Life: Eating Healthy with More Flavour

    The Canadian Cancer Society’s Spice up Your Life: Eating Healthy with More Flavour event sponsored by Safeway invites you to learn how to “spice” up your cooking using herbs and spices which contain phytochemicals that have cancer-fighting properties and may help reduce your risk of cancer instead of using too much salt since it may increase your risk of developing stomach cancer.

    This is a free community event to educate people and increase awareness around healthy lifestyle choices as well as the importance of screening and early detection of cancer.
