Canadian Strategy for Cancer ControlThe Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is releasing the refreshed Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control on June 4, 2019.

Based on input from more than 7,500 Canadians including healthcare leaders from across the country, the Strategy is a 10-year roadmap to improve equity in the cancer system and to deliver world-class cancer care to all Canadians, while focusing on a sustainable healthcare system for the future.

The Strategy’s five priorities will tackle the most pressing challenges for the next decade:

  1. Decrease the risk of people getting cancer
  2. Diagnose cancer faster, accurately and at an earlier stage
  3. Deliver high-quality care in a sustainable, world-class system
  4. Eliminate barriers to people getting the care they need
  5. Deliver information and supports for people living with cancer, families and caregivers

Three priorities were identified by First Nations, Inuit and Métis. For each of these priorities, Peoples-specific actions were identified that help drive needed changes in outcomes and experience for all First Nations, Inuit and Métis.

  1. Culturally appropriate care closer to home
  2. Peoples-specific, self-determined cancer care
  3. First Nations-, Inuit- or Métis-governed research and data systems

Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control

The Partnership is the steward of the Strategy and works with those on the front lines – in all provinces and territories, cancer agencies, First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, governments, and organizations, healthcare leaders, not-for-profit organizations, people with cancer, and those who care for them – to address challenges requiring new solutions and pan-Canadian action.

Strengthened by the support of the public, the cancer control community, and the broader health system, the Strategy is an ambitious, visionary plan to improve the health of Canadians.

Here are some quotes on the refreshed Strategy from supporters across the country:

The refresh of the Strategy identifies what First Nations, Inuit and Métis nations have articulated as priorities for the delivery of cancer care and the required supports needed to action these priorities in their respective communities. Our Métis community here in Manitoba looks forward to working alongside the Partnership to improve our cancer services in the coming years.”

– Cheryl Smith
Reeve (Mayor) of the Rural Municipality of St. Laurent, Manitoba
Indigenous Board Member of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer

The Government of Canada is committed to supporting Canadians living with cancer and their families who are affected by this disease. I want to thank the Partnership for their efforts in leading on the development of the refreshed Strategy and the Canadians who participated in the consultations. Your input was invaluable to its development and its implementation in the future.”

– The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor
Minister of Health
