The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life brings together communities, united by the same goal of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer. These events are also an opportunity to celebrate those who live and have lived in the face of cancer and those moving past cancer.
Relay is a global movement to end cancer which is active in 29 countries and 6,000 communities worldwide, whereby participants commit to raising funds for work against all types of cancer.
At the Canadian Cancer Society, we know that cancer changes people and that 1 in 2 will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. But a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to define a person. Our goal is to improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life. We believe that life is bigger than cancer.
Many of us have been directly affected by cancer and share a strong bond with others who experience the pain of this disease.

Funds raised through our Relay For Life events are changing lives for the better by supporting ground-breaking research into more than 100 types of cancer, programs and services that help people with cancer and their families, and advocacy to governments on important cancer-related issues.
