None of our activities would be possible without the help of our dedicated and passionate volunteers who are critical to making a positive impact that will help change prostate cancer forever.

Without you, we wouldn’t be able to support the 70 Canadian men diagnosed each day, enable life-changing research for the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canadian men, and create awareness that will help save more lives.

Volunteering with Prostate Cancer Canada is a great opportunity for you to make a difference in the life of someone living with prostate cancer, share your knowledge, develop your talents, connect with people and create new friendships, and be part of a team of volunteers from all across the nation.
