With the help of hundreds of thousands of people that the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) brings together, we are a force-for-life in the face of cancer. Join us and you can work with passionate and committed individuals from coast to coast who are working to improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life.
