Priority Highlights


This year, the Canadian Cancer Society launched an impassioned movement called “Join the Fight”, inviting Canadians to work with us, against cancer, for life.

Why? Every three minutes another Canadian is faced with fighting cancer – and these people are our mothers, fathers, children, siblings and friends. We want to work with you so that we see fewer loved ones and friends diagnosed with, and die from, cancer.

Many of you have already joined the battle and your generosity astounds us. Your donations to the Society provide a lifeline for everything we do. We received more than $223 million this year to fund our important work across Canada. This support gives us the power to have more impact, against more cancers, in more communities, than any other cancer charity in Canada.

A special salute goes to the thousands of volunteers who make our cross-Canada signature event – Relay For Life – a success year after year. This inspiring event raises funds as well as celebrates the people who have survived cancer and pays tribute to those who have died. This year, more than $53 million was raised through Relay.

Every contribution to our work makes a difference. Your donations allow us to do all we can to prevent cancer, save lives and support those living with the disease.

The “Join the Fight” movement is picking up momentum, and we urge you to sign on. Together we are creating a powerful collective resolve among Canadians to fight back and say “enough is enough”. The strength we gain by working together means that we won’t back down until we end cancer once and for all. Now, isn’t that a fight worth joining?
