Palliative Research and Care


Palliative care focuses on the quality of life of people with progressive, life-altering illnesses. Canadians living with cancer are the biggest users of palliative care nationwide, and patient rights have become a national conversation.


Your gift will help both those living with cancer and their caregivers by funding our national cancer support system through services such as our Cancer Information Service helpline, which provides answers to cancer-related questions. You will also help to fund research in this important area, as well as support advocacy initiatives with all levels of government to help create and implement policies to ensure all Canadians have access to quality palliative care when they need it.
