Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the work of our volunteers and staff, the Canadian Cancer Society is leading the way in cancer control to actively prevent, cure or manage cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society takes the role as steward of donor dollars very seriously and makes every effort to allocate these dollars where they will make the most difference in making cancer history. In working to control cancer, we focus our work in 5 areas:
The Canadian Cancer Society is the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada. Our research dollars are allocated by the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute. The Institute allocates research dollars through a strict review process which ensures that the money contributed by the Canadian Cancer Society is directed only to excellent cancer research across Canada.
The Canadian Cancer Society mobilizes Canadians to create social and political change to help control cancer in Canada and to create environments to reduce people’s risk of cancer. These changes will lead to fewer cases and deaths of cancer.
The Canadian Cancer Society encourages Canadians to choose healthy lifestyles and advocates for healthy environments to support them in their choices so that fewer Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer.
The Canadian Cancer Society helps you take control of your health with reliable information. Through our Cancer Information Service, www.cancer.ca, and a wide selection of publications , we offer up-to-date, accessible and credible information – information that empowers you to make good decisions when it comes to your health.
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that no one need face this disease alone. We offer individual or group support programs for caregivers, family and friends – if you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer, you might find it helpful to talk to someone who has had a similar experience. Or, to help you with your practical concerns, we offer a range of programs, such as transportation to cancer treatment. (Programs vary depending on where you live.) Our community services locator (1-800-939-3333) lets you search for these programs – and much more – close to home.
How To Get Involved With Us
Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society is a great opportunity to make a difference in someone's life, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships.
Two in five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. That means we will all be affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly through family or friends. The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to eradicating cancer and enhancing the quality of life of people living with the disease.
We are a volunteer-based organization. We can't do it without you -- help us make cancer history!
We are always looking for volunteers in:
- Health Promotion -
There are a number of opportunities for those interested in being a Health Promotion volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society. Opportunities vary from giving public presentations to helping organize and attend a community display. We look for people from all walks of life and from all areas of the province to assist with Canadian Cancer Society health promotion initiatives.
- Fundraising -
Whether you choose to play in a golf tournament, walk around a track overnight, or even shave your head, your participation will help the Canadian Cancer Society make cancer history.
- Peer Support -
CancerConnection is a telephone based peer support program that matches survivors and caregivers with a trained volunteer. Matches are based on the type of cancer, age, gender or any special concerns. If you have had cancer, or have been a caregiver to someone with cancer (more than one year ago), please contact us if you are interested in volunteering with CancerConnection.
For more information, or to sign up as a volunteer please contact our provincial office at 1-800-455-9090 or email@example.com.
