REGIONAL CANCER CARE PROGRAM

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
