Join us. Be a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer.

At the Canadian Cancer Society, October is about more than just raising awareness of breast cancer. It's about joining a collective of Canadians who are proving that life is bigger than breast cancer. This collective helps fund the best breast cancer research, provides the largest cancer support system in the country, and advocates on behalf of all Canadians for important social change.

Together, we've made significant progress in breast cancer support, prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and care. But with more than 70 Canadians being diagnosed with breast cancer each day, we know there is so much more to be done.

Learn more about how you can join us and be a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer.


This October, here's how you can take action

  • Get Involved

    There are so many ways you can get involved and be a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer.

  • Get Screened

    Screening tests help find breast cancer before any symptoms develop. When breast cancer is found and treated early, the chances of successful treatment are better. Find out more about breast cancer screening.

    Put the spotlight on early detection

    Our Get Screened program aims to increase colon, breast and cervical cancer screening rates among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities. Find out more.

  • Get Support

    Facing breast cancer is hard and no one should have to do it alone. CCS offers the largest support system in the country and we're here for you if you have questions or want to talk to someone who's been there. Learn more about our support services or call us today at 1-888-939-3333.
