The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society Merge

On February 1, 2017, the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) joined forces to increase operational efficiencies and further our impact on all types of cancer for all Canadians. This unprecedented merger allows the new Canadian Cancer Society to accelerate the impact of donor dollars on cancer research and vital support services for people living with and affected by cancer.

Since its inception in 1986, CBCF has invested over $360 million in breast cancer research, funding more than 1,400 scientific and community grants. CBCF has also made investments in research, education, health promotion, support and information programs.

CCS changes lives by working in all areas of cancer. Over the past 30 years, CCS has invested $1.2 billion in research on all cancers – men’s, women’s and children’s – including over $100 million in breast cancer research. Our support programs empower, inform and enhance the quality of life of people living with cancer. Together we will continue to make tremendous progress in the fight against cancer.

Although we are now the Canadian Cancer Society, CBCF’s mandate, activities and spirit will continue. Our commitment to the breast cancer cause remains unchanged as we work together to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
