Educating about cancer prevention
Making changes to reduce your cancer risk doesn’t mean you will never get cancer – but it does mean that your chance of getting the disease is lower. Learn how to make healthy choices and informed decisions to reduce your risk of cancer.
Advocating for all Canadians
We work with government to shape public policies that will help prevent cancer, improve outcomes and support those living with or affected by the disease. Learn how we’re influencing government and raising awareness about important cancer issues.
We’re the only national charity that supports all Canadians living with all cancers across the country. Thanks to our donors and volunteers, we’re able to fund groundbreaking cancer research into all types of cancer, offer support services to help people better manage life with cancer, shape health policies to prevent cancer and support those living with the disease, and offer trusted cancer information for all Canadians.
