WHY JOIN THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY (CCS)?
We are the only national charity that supports Canadians with all cancers in communities across the country—no other organization does what we do. As the voice for Canadians who care about cancer, we fund groundbreaking research, provide trusted information about cancer, offer a support system to help people with cancer and their families cope, and shape health policies to prevent cancer and support those living with the disease.
With the help of hundreds of thousands of people that the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) brings together, we are a force-for-life in the face of cancer. Join us and you can work with passionate and committed individuals from coast to coast who are working to improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life.
