The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership) is the steward of the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control (the Strategy). Its work is guided by the Strategy, which was refreshed for 2019 to 2029 and will help drive measurable change for all Canadians affected by cancer and a future where fewer people get cancer, more people survive cancer and those living with the disease have a better quality of life.

The Partnership works with those on the front lines of cancer care, and people living with the disease, to make system-level changes that improve all aspects of the cancer continuum from prevention, screening and diagnosis through to treatment, clinical care, palliative care and survivorship. Partners include provincial and territorial governments, cancer agencies, health organizations, health-care professionals, people living with cancer and those who care for them, as well as First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, governments and organizations.

The Partnership’s work is guided by a commitment to reducing inequities in cancer care for underserviced people in Canada such as those living in rural and remote areas, those with low income and new immigrants, and addressing First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples-specific cancer control priorities and actions, outlined in the Strategy, reflecting Canada’s commitment to reconciliation.

The Partnership is funded by Health Canada. Learn more about the impact being made by the Partnership with partners across Canada at: www.partnershipagainstcancer.ca.

The Partnership’s Cancer Control Division implements programs and initiatives that deliver on the priorities of the 2019-2029 Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control. The division is comprised of program teams that specialize in all parts of the cancer continuum – prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, clinical care, survivorship and palliative care. The program teams work in partnership with provincial and territorial governments, cancer agencies, health organizations, health-care professionals, people living with cancer and those who care for them, to drive practice and policy changes that improve the cancer experience for all people in Canada. All program teams in the division place a special focus on populations in Canada who have less access to timely and effective cancer prevention, services and care, and the teams ensure that all initiatives take action to address the unique challenges faced by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples affected by cancer.
