The Canadian Cancer Society is proud to support World Cancer Day – a global initiative where the world unites in the fight against cancer, bringing awareness of efforts to reduce the global burden of cancer.

Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, everyone has the power to take action to reduce the impact that cancer has.

One way we help people living with cancer is by providing credible and reliable information and support. As leaders in information, support, prevention, advocacy and research, we are the most trusted voice on cancer in Canada.
