Our mandate

Improving cancer outcomes for all people in Canada

Canada’s cancer strategy envisions a future where fewer people develop cancer, more survive it, those living with the disease have a better quality of life and everyone has equitable access to high-quality cancer care. The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer exists to make that vision real. As steward of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control, we collaborate with and convene provincial, territorial and national partners across Canada’s health and cancer community to strengthen cancer care and improve cancer outcomes for all people in Canada.
