WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP’S DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
 
To help us meet our goal of becoming Canada’s destination for evidence-based cancer control information, we’re in the process of consolidating a number of our websites including Cancerview.ca and PartnershipAgainstCancer.ca.

Improvements to our digital experience are based on feedback we’ve heard from people like you.

Not only does the consolidated website provide a more user-friendly, functional experience on both desktop and mobile devices, it makes it easier for the Canadian cancer control community to find the information, tools and resources they’re looking for, as well as related content.

Moving forward, our main website will be PartnershipAgainstCancer.ca.
