The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership) is in the fourth year of an initial five-year mandate to implement the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control. Together with our partners, we have built a strong foundation and made significant progress in co-ordinating efforts across the country to reduce the impact of cancer for all Canadians. While we have made considerable gains, achieving the full scope of our national cancer control strategy requires sustained action. The Partnership is pleased to share The Future of Cancer Control in Canada discussion paper to support ongoing dialogue about priorities for 2012-2017.
