As Canada’s longest standing and most trusted cancer charity, the Canadian Cancer Society has been making a difference in the lives of Canadians for 75 years. We are a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
By taking a stand against cancer, we work to:
Save lives. Our researchers continue to discover new information that is transforming diagnosis and treatment.
Stop cancer before it starts. Our researchers are leading the way to find ways to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that protect the public.
Ensure no one faces cancer alone. We offer community services and support to those living with cancer and their families and friends.
Empower Canadians. We provide credible information on cancer to help them make informed choices about their health.
