CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Getting transportation to treatment
We have suspended our Wheels of Hope service but will relaunch it, with revisions due to COVID-19, when it is safe to do so. Until then, we encourage clients to use their own personal network for travel if they can.
Sometimes simply getting to treatment can be difficult. If you can’t afford the cost of travel, or if you are not physically well enough to use public transportation, we can work with you to help find a solution.
Our Wheels of Hope Transportation Service covers 2 programs: Volunteer Driver Provided Program and Family Provided Program. These programs are intended to assist an eligible client and escort (if required) with their short-term travel to attend cancer-specific medical appointments delivered by a professional recognized by Ontario's Health Care System at a hospital or cancer center. Patients must declare a financial, physical or emotional need for service. For more information about each program click the 'Need Transportation' tab below.
