Call for volunteers with a personal connection to cancer
Achieving better cancer outcomes for all Canadians requires a collaborative approach that involves clinicians, health system leaders and people personally affected by cancer. That’s why the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer relies on the input and expertise of a range of individuals and groups through various advisory structures and volunteer opportunities. These perspectives are critical to the Partnership’s success in reducing the incidence of cancer, lessening the likelihood of Canadians dying from cancer and enhancing the quality of life for those affected by cancer.

A call for applications is now underway to expand the Partnership’s volunteer engagement and attract a broader group of volunteers with a personal connection to cancer from across Canada. Volunteers are needed as members of advisory groups and national networks, to participate in focus groups and opinion surveys, or share their personal experience with cancer as a communications volunteer to name only a few. Individuals interested in becoming a volunteer are invited to submit an application package no later than July 18, 2014. For more information about the application process, click here.
