About us

Each and every day, the Canadian Cancer Society impacts the lives of people living with cancer, and our reach is felt in communities throughout Canada. Our impact and reach is achieved through the combined efforts of many, working toward our common goals and priorities of cancer research, prevention, advocacy, support, information and resources.

Our story is one of hope: It is the many volunteers who put their hearts into helping others during difficult times. It is the compassion of individuals and generosity of communities. It is the inspiration of cancer survivors; and it is the dedication of volunteers, loyal supporters and staff.

Behind our commitment, each of us has a personal story and our own motivation to make a difference. This, combined with our confidence and hope for a better tomorrow, moves us to never give up on our mission. Indeed, we are furthering our mission to eradicate cancer and improve the quality of life of people living with cancer, each and everyday.

Our advances, in so many ways, are linked to successful cancer research. Research that informs prevention initiatives; improves treatment; improves quality of life; reduces mortality; and also helps inform our programs and services so patients and families have the support and information they require when they need it most. That same research helps inform our advocacy efforts, by telling us where public policy changes can be most effective in reducing the burden of cancer.

Our accomplishments are your success stories. Every advance and every success is because of you and others like you. When we work together, there is every reason to be optimistic and hopeful. Thank you for helping us make cancer history, every day, every way we can.

How you can help:

Volunteering: We all benefit

Volunteering is an enriching experience in so many ways.

When you become part of our team, you have an opportunity to:
  • support a cause you truly believe in
  • apply your current skills and gain some new ones
  • meet new people, make new friends and develop professional contacts
  • feel the personal satisfaction of helping others
  • make a difference in your own community
The rewards are as unique and personal as your reasons for wanting to volunteer.

Too busy? We can work with you to provide rewarding experiences, whatever your schedule.

Think you don't have any skills to offer? You'd be surprised. And, if you need training, we'll provide it.
