About Canadian Cancer Society - Ontario Division:

Founded in 1938, the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) funds cancer research, influences government policy on cancer and provides information to prevent cancer and to support people with this disease. The Ontario division of CCS (CCSON) focuses more on lung cancer since lung cancer is one of the most fatal forms of cancer in Canada. CCSON aims to raise survival rates and improve the quality of life of cancer patients.

Canadian Cancer Society Ontario Division spent $29.6m on programs, $3.0m on advocacy efforts and allocated $19.2m to cancer research in F2015. It also aids the Canadian Cancer Society in running the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (CCSRI). CCSRI's research areas cover prevention, treatment and diagnosis. CCSRI reviews all funding applications and allocates funds. This year, CCSON helped 20,000 smokers in their attempts to quit smoking; it ran the Smokers' Helpline in Ontario. This free telephone service responded to 746 inquiries about lung cancer.

Through its advocacy efforts, the Canadian Cancer Society Ontario Division succeeded in banning smoking on restaurants' patios and other open areas. CCSON states that its research has saved nearly 100,000 lives in the past 20 years.
