Despite all the advancements made over the years, cancer remains the leading cause of mortality in Canada


  • Cancer is responsible for nearly one third of all deaths 
  • Approximately 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer during their lifetime 
  • Every 3 minutes, 1 person will be diagnosed with cancer



Cancer death rates are on the decline. More and more people are now living with cancer, more so now than ever before.


And that’s thanks to research.


When you donate to the Cancer Research Society, you buy researchers more time to make scientific breakthroughs, make earlier diagnoses and discover better treatments.


This in turn buys us all more time…more time to spend with loved ones and live our lives. Time means so much to everyone, from researchers to you and your loved ones.


Please help us buy more time for us all.
