About Colorectal Cancer Canada:

Colorectal Cancer Canada (CCC) was formed in 2017 through the amalgamation of Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (founded in 1998) and Colon Cancer Canada (founded in 1996). Colorectal Cancer Canada works to increase awareness of colorectal cancer, support patients, and advocate on their behalf. The charity says that colorectal cancer is preventable and treatable, yet it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths overall for men and women in Canada. Additionally, one in 14 men and one in 16 women are expected to develop colorectal cancer during their lifetime. An estimated 26,100 Canadians were diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2016.

Colorectal Cancer Canada focuses on three areas: awareness, support, and advocacy. CCC hosts a variety of awareness and education events throughout the year, participates in health forums and conferences, holds free information sessions, and produces public service announcements for television, radio, and print. It supports Canadians through support groups across the country, connecting patients, survivors, and caregivers. CCC’s advocacy work informs decision-makers of the two biggest concerns for colorectal cancer prevention and care in Canada: nation-wide screening and patient access to effective medical treatments. The charity interacts with politicians and officials through discussions, press conferences, and education events to promote effective policy.
