About the Foundation:
The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading national volunteer-based organization in Canada dedicated to creating a future without breast cancer.  Established in 1986 by a dedicated group of volunteers, the Foundation works collaboratively to fund, support and advocate for:   

  • Relevant and innovated research
  • Meaningful education and awareness programs
  •  Early diagnosis and effective treatment, and
  • A positive quality of life for those living with breast cancer

Our fundraising has enabled the Foundation to allocate millions of dollars in grants for breast cancer projects and services since our inception.


Making a Difference:
Our investments are made with a strategic focus on the impact on the lives of those most affected by breast cancer, including improving women's quality of life and increasing knowledge about breast cancer risk reduction and treatment.  The Foundation supports high-quality research in all areas including education and prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and other after-care supports.  We direct additional dollars to the cause through work in the areas of health promotion, community engagement, volunteer development, and advocacy.
