Working together towards reconciliation and healing

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is committed to the ongoing process of reconciliation and acknowledges that colonial practices and policies continue to impact the well-being of generations of First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Through our work and partnerships, we continue to support self-determined, Peoples-specific solutions for sustainable system change across cancer care that benefit all First Nations, Inuit and Métis in Canada.
