Welcome to The Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute
Since 1947, the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (formerly the National Cancer Institute of Canada [NCIC]) has supported thousands of researchers through the administration of more than $1 billion in cancer research funding. This funding was made possible because of the Canadian Cancer Society’s longstanding commitment to research. On February 1, 2009, the Canadian Cancer Society integrated the operations of the NCIC, creating the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (CCSRI).
In March 2010, the Society’s board of directors approved the Nationwide Strategic Plan 2010–15: The Fight for Life. Capitalizing on the Society’s history and reputation, the nationwide strategic plan builds on our strengths in programs, policy and research to advance progress in cancer control along the entire spectrum from prevention to end of life. To align with the new strategic plan, the CCSRI research program has been evaluated and redesigned to ensure we continue to fund excellent research. Our new research portfolio is more innovative, builds on our strengths as an organization and as a country, it will differentiate the Canadian Cancer Society within the cancer research environment and among cancer charities, and it will excite the public about the importance of research.
Above all, the research we fund will continue to have an impact on cancer patients and populations so that fewer Canadians face cancer, more Canadians survive cancer and there is a better quality of life for Canadians living with and beyond cancer.
