Volunteer Driver Provided Program
Since the mid 1950's the Society has provided volunteer driver transportation assistance for people with cancer.
Volunteer drivers provide return trips for patients from their home to treatment centres. They offer friendly support and kindness at a time when patients need it most.
New patients who register for volunteer driver provided transportation will be required to pay a one-time registration fee of $100. Patients 18 years or younger or are covered by the Northern Health Travel Grant are exempt. If you are unable to pay the full registration fee, you may be eligible for assistance through our compassionate program. We are committed to ensuring that no patient is denied a ride due to their inability to pay the entire registration fee. FAQ about the fee.
To register or for more information call 1-888-939-3333.
Family Provided Program
Family provided transportation assistance is available to a family who's child has cancer if a volunteer driver is not available or if the use of a volunteer driver is not appropriate. In this instance families provide the transportation to treatment and are reimbursed financially according to our policies.
Contact your local Canadian Cancer Society office for more information or to register for family provided transportation.
