Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation

Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation

We support people diagnosed with cancer across Eastern Ontario. We bring together community-based cancer supports and services, and fund innovation in local research and clinical trials to bring the most promising treatments to fruition.

Through collaboration with many community partners, the Ottawa Community Cancer Hub offers a single referral point that connects anyone impacted by cancer, including survivors, families and caregivers, to programs and services that best suit their needs.

Our bilingual Cancer System Navigators provide practical information, referrals and a listening ear, and our onsite programs and classes – such as nutrition, exercise and art therapy, among others – are free of charge for anyone impacted by cancer.

With your generous support, people on their cancer journey can get the personalized care they need and know they are not alone.

Fundraising Priorities

Cancer Support

We can help with cancer care system navigation, individual counselling, support groups, nutrition and wellness programs, caregiver support, programs for children, financial and transportation assistance, return to work planning, end of life care, bereavement and more.


Advances in precision and personalized medicine are steadily leading to improvements in cancer prevention, screening, and treatments. We remain focused on investing in the most promising research and technology for how we detect, treat and find cures for cancer.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are essential to cancer care and can help improve the quality of life for patients during and after treatment. Today, people are living longer lives from successful treatments that are the results of past trials.

How You Can Help


When you support the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, you invest in person-centred care. You invest in emerging research and breakthroughs, you invest in community partnerships and you invest in survivorship and improved outcomes for people impacted by cancer.

Give Monthly

Want to increase your impact? Consider giving monthly and spread out a gift in smaller amounts. It makes giving affordable, convenient and predictable. For example, an annual gift of $1,000 is approximately only $83 a month or $20 a week.

Honour a Loved One

A gift given in memory is a personal way to honour and celebrate a loved one while giving back to a cause that you both cared deeply about.

Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift in your will lets you make a true gift of a lifetime – one that you might not be able to afford while you’re alive. With the promise of future funding to fight cancer, it lets you build the world as you would wish to see it.

Create a Corporate Fundraiser or Consider Workplace Giving

Is there cancer in your work family? If your company has an event like a golf tournament or BBQ, proceeds can help your coworkers and their families.

There are many ways to support individuals facing cancer. Giving back can be easy. To begin a conversation, please contact:
