Trust your legacy to the Canadian Cancer Society.

At the Canadian Cancer Society, our vision is a world where no one fears cancer.

We are a national, community-based organization of staff and volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

We set ourselves apart from other cancer charities by taking a comprehensive approach against cancer. We are also the only national charity that supports all Canadians living with cancers across the country.

When you support the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), you’re doing more than simply making a donation. You’re helping the nearly 1 in 2 Canadians who will hear the words “you have cancer” in their lifetime.

Your donation will be put to work immediately — we need your help to create a world where no one fears cancer.

Please read on as you consider ways to give.
