Volunteer for our Daffodil Campaign

This spring, volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign in your community. With the passion and support of our volunteers, no other cancer charity does what we do. We fund game-changing research into more than 100 types of cancer. We are proud to offer compassionate programs and support services – like our coast-to-coast, cancer information helpline – so no one has to face cancer alone. And we advocate to make healthy living a possibility for everyone.

For the nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we’re here to help. Volunteer and be a part of our collective that continues to change lives for the better. Together, we prove that life is bigger than cancer.

    The Canadian Cancer Society’s door-to-door fundraising campaign operates in several communities across Ontario. As part of the campaign, volunteers canvass their local neighbourhood for donations. If you’re interested in being a door-to-door canvass volunteer, contact your local community office.
