We believe cancer can be beaten.

Our cancer and research centres have been ranked among the best in the world and we’re seeing breakthroughs that a decade ago were deemed impossible to achieve. Our world-leading research draws experts from around the world to work in our facilities, to help us revolutionize every aspect of cancer care.

Over the next 15 years, Canadians will see a 40 percent increase in cancer diagnoses with almost one in two developing cancer in their lifetime. Our ability to translate research into patient therapies coupled with one of the best-equipped cancer centres in the country means we are well-positioned to face this challenge head-on. We are challenging cancer. And winning.
