Help prevent cancer and be an advocate

Together we can make Canada a healthy place to live. By sharing life-saving prevention messages with our local communities. By telling lawmakers why increased cancer research funding is important to us. Working together, we can create social and political change that will help control cancer in Canada.

To help deliver on our mission, there are a number of ways you can help spread the word and take action.

Promote healthy living and risk reduction messages by distributing materials and making presentations to groups and organizations in your community. Work with local media to communicate prevention-related messages through public service announcements and other materials. Write letters to different levels of government, encourage communication with local politicians to help influence healthy policy development and participate in public forums.

Become a community action volunteer

Our community action volunteers help reduce the risk of cancer by educating people about healthy lifestyle choices and the importance of screening and early detection.  Whether it’s by distributing posters, having a display or presentation at your workplace, sharing information in a newsletter or hosting a presentation, you provide the enthusiasm and we will help bring your idea to life. 

Spread the word using social media

Post about your experiences and the issues you are care about – help us best represent those touched by cancer when we advocate for change. Spark discussion on issues that we are advocating for – comment and provide us with feedback so we can fight on your behalf.

Use the hashtag #vote4health when advocating for us and to increase awareness on important cancer issues.

Thank you for choosing to offer your time and talents to support the Canadian Cancer Society. Our volunteer opportunities look a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We value the health and safety of volunteers, staff and the people we support. For that reason, we have temporarily closed our offices and suspended our in-person volunteering, as well as recruitment and intake for most volunteer roles. In the coming months, we’re hoping that it will be safe to reopen opportunities. We’re also working to identify how volunteers can be involved remotely and online.

If you are interested in becoming a prospective volunteer, please email us and include information about your skills, experience, and areas of interest.



Rebecca and James Hamm It was very important that the fundraiser be in honour of my uncle, because it’s a great way to show our support for him.
