CCSN is looking for proposals from qualified individuals or companies, to support us in the re-design of our website at www.survivornet.ca. The CCSN website was opened in June 2012 and has been a significant factor in building the survivor voice presence in the community. The site has thousands of pages of information, opportunities for the patient voice, and patient, survivor, family and community education.
The website is part of a strategy the founding group had from the beginning, which was to maximize use of digital/social media for outreach, education and most other aspects of the CCSN Mission, both to be financially viable but also to reach people where they are, which is online.
