CCS is actively monitoring and responding to the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada regarding coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Finding support groups

The Canadian Cancer Society Newfoundland and Labrador Division offers adult support groups for people living with cancer in many communities across our province.

Currently, we have groups operating in:
Call toll-free 1-888-753-6520 for more information.
Call toll-free 1-866-545-9534 for more information.
Call toll-free 1-866-545-9533 for more information.
We also work closely with external organizations that offer support groups for specific cancers.
