Your Dollars at Work

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian women over the age of 20. It is a complex disease that requires an evidence-based approach and multi-faceted research that investigates how to reduce the incidence of breast cancer, how to improve the quality of life for those living with the disease and how to reduce mortality so that more women survive the disease. 

Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-driven organization in Canada dedicated to creating a future without breast cancer. Our investments in innovative and relevant research and education have led to progress in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. Since 1986, we have been at the forefront of a nationwide movement supporting and advocating for the breast cancer community.
