Purpose

To unite and inspire all Canadians to take control of cancer

Mission

In trusted partnership with donors and volunteers, we improve the lives of all those affected by cancer through world-class research, transformative advocacy and compassionate support.

What We Do

At the Canadian Cancer Society, we are committed to improving and saving lives. That’s why we are always looking for new ways to prevent cancer, find it early and treat it more successfully. It’s why we’re always ready to give people with cancer the help and support they need to lead more fulfilling lives. 

Values

Our volunteers and staff have the energy and passion to contribute to a better future for others and to work tirelessly to improve lives now. We embrace our organizational values which serve as guidelines for our conduct and behaviour as we work towards our vision of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
