Cancer in Eastern Ontario

Almost every hour, someone in our community is diagnosed with cancer.

Each year in Eastern Ontario:

  • 8,000 new cancer cases are diagnosed.
  • 30,000 people in our community are undergoing cancer treatment.
  • There are more than 3,000 cancer surgeries.
  • There are more than 27,000 chemotherapy visits.
  • There are more than 70,000 radiation treatments.

We are investing in state-of-the-art research and clinical trials, and empowering cancer survivors each and every day through the delivery of the Community Cancer Hub. The Hub is a one-stop portal for cancer patients in Eastern Ontario and their families. It provides practical information about non-medical services in a patient’s own community to help them, and their families, through various stages of their disease.

We know that as cancer evolves, so too does a patient’s needs, and the current healthcare model often leaves many of these needs unmet. But with support from the community, we are changing that – and helping more local families access the very best cancer care available, right here at home.
