The Canadian Cancer Society is 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.
As Canada's longest standing cancer charity, we have been making a difference in the lives of Canadians since 1938. 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.
We are working hard to: 1) Save lives by continuing to discover new information that is transforming diagnosis and treatment. 2) Stop cancer before it starts by finding ways to prevent cancer, promote healthy lifestyles, and advocate for policies that protect the public. 3) Ensure no one facing cancer is alone by offering services and support to those living with cancer and their loved ones. 4) Empower Canadians with information on cancer to help them make informed choices about their health.
The Ontario Division of the Society has tremendous presence and profile in communities throughout this province. At the heart of our Division's efforts are the 31 staff-run community offices and over 200 volunteer-operated branch offices. Over 60,000 volunteers work tirelessly along with staff at all levels to carry out the mission of our organization.
