CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
What we are doing
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that working with government and legislators to bring about healthy public policies is a vital part of achieving our vision of a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
By working across party lines and with like-minded organizations, advocates of the Canadian Cancer Society are making a difference in finding new and better ways to protect the health of Canadians, shrink cancer rates and reduce cancer’s toll on our country. We thank our donors for making these important activities possible.

We realize that our efforts cannot even be compared to what women face when they hear the words ... ‘you have cancer.’
Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
