Regional Cancer Care Program

Funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer and in partnership with Cancer Care Ontario, the Regional Cancer Program aims to address the ongoing cancer-related health disparities that exist between Urban Inuit and the general population in Ontario. Currently, the Regional Cancer Program is a 3-year project with four main areas of focus: prevention, cancer screening, patient experience and research and surveillance. Working closely with Indigenous Cancer Control Unit of Cancer Care Ontario, we are the only community-based Regional Cancer Program in the province. We are grounded in an understanding and awareness of Inuit-specific determinants of health and the principles of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (IQ).

What we do:

  • Health Promotion
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Education and Knowledge Translation
  • Community Engagement
  • Relationship Building
  • Advocacy
