Our Purpose

Our Vision

Creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer.

Our Mission


The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

Our Values 

These serve as guidelines for our conduct and behaviour as we work towards our vision.

  • Caring
    We are passionate, considerate, respectful and empathetic toward those individuals and families touched by cancer and our colleagues. We believe that all people should be treated with consideration and dignity. Our encouraging and supportive environment allows volunteers and staff to thrive, and contributes to our ability to advance our cause.

  • Courage
    We value the determination and drive of our volunteers and staff to take bold steps to effect positive change. We recognize that such spirit requires a unique strength of character—an inherent quality found in the hearts and minds of people who champion the cancer cause.

  • Integrity
    We are honest and ethical in all that we do, and engage in responsible decision-making that reflects the highest standards of conduct. This ensures that our credibility, leadership and use of donor dollars is never in question.

  • Progressive
    We value our history of learning as we strive for continuous improvement and development at all levels of the organization. We embrace a creative approach to finding solutions that are appropriate and consistent with the strategy, character and abilities of the organization. We value diversity and work hard to create a collaborative environment where we benefit from the cultural perspectives of others.
