The Canadian Cancer Society was founded in 1938. We are a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life for people living with cancer. We provide leading financial support for cancer research and deliver community-based support programs and prevention information for all types of cancer.
The BC and Yukon Division is one of ten divisions across Canada:
In partnership with our research arm – the National Cancer Institute of Canada – we achieve our mission through research, education, patient services and advocacy for proactive public health policy. Our volunteers and staff support these efforts with funds raised in communities across the country.
