About The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer

Created in 2007, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (“the Partnership”) is an independent organization funded by the federal government to implement the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control. The Strategy aims to reduce the incidence of cancer, lessen the likelihood of Canadians dying from cancer, and enhance the quality of life of those affected by cancer. As the steward of the Strategy, we work collaboratively with cancer agencies, governments, national organizations, patients and families to advance meaningful and measurable progress in achieving shared goals.

Our work spans the cancer control continuum, from prevention and screening to research and supportive care. We endeavour to embed a person-centred perspective in all of our work, and have specific efforts in underserved areas such as rural, northern, and remote communities. We strive to be culturally responsive to the needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities. Through collaboration, we are delivering results against our 2017 outcomes, effecting system-level change and reducing the burden of cancer on Canadians.
