Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC)

UICC Member and Partner
2018 Congress Gold Sponsor

Sharing Canada’s 10-years of progress with the global cancer community
Evidence shows that countries with a national cancer strategy are more successful in making progress in cancer control. More than a decade ago, the Canadian cancer community came together to create one of the first such strategies. The Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control set out three ambitious 30-years goals: that fewer Canadians develop cancer, fewer die from cancer, and those affected by cancer have a better quality of life.

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer was created in 2006 to move the Strategy into action, working with partners throughout the system to implement it and measuring its progress. To do this, we created a network model that established collaborative relationships with the provinces and territories, non-governmental organizations, researchers, health professionals and many others.
