At the Canadian Cancer Society, we are committed to improving and saving lives. That's why we are always looking for new ways to prevent cancer, find it early and treat it more successfully. It's why we're always ready to give people with cancer the help and support they need to lead more fulfilling lives. It's an opportunity to help someone go from having cancer to living life with it. To make healthy living easier for people affected by this disease. And a chance to support game-changing research so we can continue making differences in the lives of those affected. Help us prove that life is bigger than cancer.

We're looking for passionate, creative, and innovative leaders. Leaders who are committed to engaging their team and with connecting the community. As a Relay For Life committee volunteer you will collaborate with Society staff and community members to raise awareness and funds for people living with cancer.

Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships.
