Your New Community Cancer Hub
The Ottawa Cancer Foundation provides community-based programs and services out of our beautiful location at 1500 Alta Vista Drive. When you walk through our doors, you will be greeted by a professional team, community partners, health care practitioners and volunteers who are here to offer you options in a variety of health and well-being activities.
It is entirely through the generosity of our donors, and in partnership with over 40 different organizations, that the Ottawa Cancer Foundation is able to provide complimentary cancer support and services to the greater Ottawa community.
Cancer System Navigation
The health care system can be overwhelming. Giving you accurate, up-to-date information on local cancer supports is one of our top priorities. Right from the moment of diagnosis, wherever your cancer journey takes you, we can help. Cancer System Navigators are available to listen and understand your needs. They will do the research and legwork for you. They will help you find the answer to your questions or help you find the right resources to meet your current needs. Individuals who would like to speak with someone about cancer support in our community can contact our Cancer System Navigator.
