About Us

On February 1, 2020, Prostate Cancer Canada amalgamated with the Canadian Cancer Society, bringing together two organizations working toward a common goal – a world where no Canadian fears cancer.

 

This transformational partnership is a bold and critically needed step forward within the cancer charity sector in Canada. With more than 300 cancer charities in the country, amalgamating enables us to reduce duplication and ensure donations go further in helping people facing prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer Canada’s important work in addressing prostate cancer in Canada will continue as part of the Canadian Cancer Society. Together we can improve and save more lives.

The toll today

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian men. Every day, an estimated 63 Canadians are diagnosed with prostate cancer and 11 will die.

If caught late, only about 1in 4 will survive.

Shared success

The good news is that  prostate cancer mortality has been cut in half in the last 25 years. If detected early, survival is now close to 100 per cent.

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
