#30MinutesThatMatter: Modernizing the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control
The Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control (the Strategy) has guided Canada’s progress in cancer control since 2006. Canada has made considerable progress since then, but there’s still work left to do. One in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime.
The Partnership recently led broad consultations across Canada to inform the modernization of the Strategy. Nearly 7,500 Canadians provided their advice by taking #30MinutesThatMatter and completing the Choicebook or participating in in-person consultations.
This session will:
– highlight key achievements from the first 10 years of implementing the Strategy
– outline how the refreshed Strategy will continue to support, complement and build on provincial and territorial cancer strategies
– share the vision for transforming cancer care to ensure Canada remains a leader in delivering high-quality cancer care
