The Canadian Cancer Research Alliance (CCRA) is an alliance of organizations that collectively fund most of the cancer research conducted in Canada – research that will lead to:
- better ways to prevent cancer
- diagnose cancer
- treat cancer and
- improve patient and survivor outcomes.
Members include federal research funding programs/agencies, provincial research agencies, provincial cancer care agencies, cancer charities, and other voluntary associations.
We are motivated by the belief that, through effective collaboration, Canadian cancer research funding organizations can maximize their collective impact on cancer control and accelerate discovery for the ultimate benefit of Canadians affected by cancer.
Our Executive Office is supported by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, an independent, not-for-profit organization funded by the federal government to accelerate action on cancer control for all Canadians. For more information on the Partnership’s role, click here.
The CCRA is not a registered charity and cannot accept donations. If you wish to donate to a charity that funds cancer research, please check our Members page.
Contribute to Canada's Cancer Research Vision
We need you to help define the future of cancer research in Canada!
On behalf of the cancer research community, the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance (CCRA) in collaboration with Shift Health, is creating an exciting 20-year vision for cancer research in Canada. Our online survey is one way that you can contribute your ideas and opinions and we are hoping that researchers, persons affected by cancer, and members of the public will participate. It is your chance to dream big and think boldly about the potential for the cancer research system to ensure it remains leading-edge and addresses the pressing challenges associated with cancer. The survey should take no more than 15-20 minutes of your time. Click on this link to access the survey.
