Integrated Accessibility Standards Policy
The purpose of this policy is to ensure that the Canadian Cancer Society, National and Ontario Division (the “Society”), complies with Ontario Regulation 191/11 Integrated Accessibility Standards (“Regulation”) under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005.
The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to identifying, eliminating and preventing barriers and increasing accessibility for persons with disabilities in the areas of information, communications and employment.
The Canadian Cancer Society is governed by this policy as well as the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service Policy and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, in meeting the accessibility needs of persons with disabilities.
The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We believe in integration and equal opportunity. We are committed to meeting the needs of persons with disabilities in a timely manner and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
The Canadian Cancer Society will develop, document and maintain an accessibility plan outlining the Canadian Cancer Society’s strategy to prevent and remove barriers from our workplace and to improve opportunities for persons with disabilities.
The accessibility plan will be reviewed and updated at least once every 5 years and will be posted on cancer.ca. Upon request, we will provide a copy of the accessibility plan in an accessible format.

What’s the lifetime risk of getting cancer?
The latest Canadian Cancer Statistics report shows about half of Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
