About Us

Prostate Cancer Canada is the leading national charity addressing prostate cancer needs across the country.

The toll today

Every day, an average of 63 Canadians are diagnosed with prostate cancer. It’s the most common cancer among Canadian men.

An average of 11 die from the disease every day. If caught late, three of four will die.

Shared success

The good news is that since Prostate Cancer Canada was created in 1994, the death rate from prostate cancer has dropped by half. If detected early, survival is now close to 100 per cent.

Our efforts have saved and improved lives. In our first 25 years, we invested $120 million in research that gives hope to those affected. We enhanced the work of support groups across the country, offered easy-to-understand information to Canadians affected by the disease and increased public awareness.

But much more needs to be done.

Continuing the journey

We will work together with everyone committed to the prostate cancer cause to:

  • Ensure no man is diagnosed with stage IV prostate cancer by 2029
  • Decrease the death rate of prostate cancer by another 50 per cent by 2029
  • Improve timely access to new and publicly-funded diagnosis, treatment and care
  • Improve access to the highest quality prostate cancer information
  • Make it easier for all Canadians to talk about prostate cancer



2019-2023 Strategic Plan

Our vision

A life without prostate cancer.

Our mission

We strive to save lives by improving prevention, detection and treatment of prostate cancer, and to enhance the quality of life for all Canadians affected by the disease through collaboration, driving world-class research and translating knowledge into better outcomes.

Creating more hope

We will save and improve more lives by working with partners to:
  • Fund more research to generate new knowledge
  • Increase the speed at which new evidence is incorporated into government policies and health care practices
  • Encourage more conversations by sharing the best information and include younger Canadians, women, families and those at higher risk
  • Innovate in the way we engage staff and volunteers, manage our financial resources and increase donations
