As Canada’s largest national health charity and leader in the fight against cancer, the Canadian Cancer Society has had more impact in more communities than any other cancer charity:

  • We spearhead life-saving research. As the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada, the Society has invested more than one billion dollars in research so far, and efforts have led to breakthroughs that revolutionize the way cancer is diagnosed, treated and prevented.
  • We empower people facing cancer with free information and support services for patients and their families. Since 1996 the Canadian Cancer Society Cancer Information Service has helped more than one million Canadians with their cancer-related questions.
  • We lead change for a healthier Ontario. The Canadian Cancer Society has been a forceful and persistent voice on the tobacco control front, and efforts have led to laws that prohibit smoking in public spaces and workplaces, ban cigarette displays and vending machines and help control contraband.

The Society also mobilizes a community of fighters – 60,000 volunteers in Ontario alone – to help deliver programs, organize fundraising events, push change through government and fuel prevention efforts.

All of this is made possible through our ground-breaking fundraising programs and campaigns such as Relay For Life and Daffodil Month, as well as the unwavering support of our corporate partners and donors.
