Finding support groups

During the COVID-19 outbreak, we remain available to support you with your cancer support or information needs in the programs noted below.

Support groups are a good place to get information and learn from others. You may also feel less alone. You may prefer individual counselling or one-to-one peer support. We also offer the following options:

  • Online support community

    We also offer an online support community for people living with cancer and their caregivers. Visit CancerConnection.ca to learn more.

  • Support resources in your community

    We can also help you find support resources right in your community. Call us toll-free at 1-888-939-3333 or use our online community services locator for help finding services in or near your community.

  • Interested in starting a support group?

    If you are interested in starting a cancer support group, the Canadian Cancer Society can help. We can offer one- or two-day workshops to help guide you on best practices on running a support group.

    Contact us at 1-888-939-3333.
