Investing in Progress

We understand how important it is to make smart investments with your dollars — investments that have a clear impact on patients—earlier detection, improved treatments and quality of life.

"...if we can say that our work and research has meaning and has advanced the goal of improving the care of those living with cancer, we can all derive satisfaction from the end result."

Areas of Investment


We invest more than $15 million annually in cancer research. Because of research 600 people survive cancer in Alberta today that would not have survived 25 years ago.
