National Impact Awards

The Canadian Cancer Society’s volunteer Impact Awards are the highest honour that an individual or a group of volunteers can receive. The volunteer Impact Awards recognize the remarkable generosity and commitment of our amazing collective of volunteers that go above and beyond to advance our mission.

From coast-to-coast, we are recognizing over 100 volunteers, participants and partners who are making a difference in the face of cancer in 2019 through Our Impact Awards.

We want to express our sincere congratulations to the winners of this year’s Impact Awards. We are deeply grateful for their support, time and energy in improving the cancer experience for the 1 in 2 Canadians who are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Together, we are a force-for-life in the face of cancer. We respect the privacy preferences of our recipients and not all award recipients are listed here.
