The Canadian healthcare system has a variety of moving parts, it is crucial to stay up-to-date as well as informed on how we can positively impact cancer care in the country.
This section provides information on current issues in Canada surrounding health care and cancer, as well as opportunities to get involved in improving cancer care in our healthcare system. If you have any questions or want to get involved in our efforts, please contact us!
The objective of the Seat at the Table program is to increase the number of informed cancer patients, survivors and caregivers sitting on cancer and other healthcare boards, committees and research peer review committees where decisions are being made about cancer diagnosis, treatment, post-treatment and research funding.

During election campaigns, we work with patients and survivors to frame questions about cancer care and healthcare issues nationally or in their province or territory. Once questions are prepared, we send them to all political parties and to all candidates for these parties. Responses are then shared on our website as well as through our blog and social media.
