The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is an independent organization funded by the federal government to accelerate action on cancer control for all Canadians. The Partnership works with cancer experts, charitable organizations, governments, cancer agencies, national health organizations, patients, survivors and others to implement Canada’s cancer control strategy.
The Partnership’s work spans the cancer control continuum, from prevention and screening to research and supportive care. Our collaborative approach is mindful of the patient voice, and strives to be culturally responsive to the needs of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities.
The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer’s model is a unique approach to addressing cancer, co-operating and collaborating across jurisdictions and organizations to optimize the effectiveness and efficiency of cancer control efforts across the continuum. Over a 30-year-span – by 2037 – the Partnership’s goals, shared with its partners, are to reduce the incidence of cancer, lessen the likelihood of Canadians dying from cancer and enhance the quality of life of those living with cancer.
