About the Society

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.
