Canadian Partnership Against Cancer
Information for people on the cancer journey, and their health care professionals and employers, to help them stay at and return to work.

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is sponsoring a project to create an interactive website which will provide information and resources about return to work for Canadian cancer survivors, health care providers and employers.

An interdisciplinary team of experts led by Dr. Christine Maheu (McGill University) and Ms. Maureen Parkinson (BC Cancer Agency) is working with de Souza Institute to create tool kits and resources on topics such as support for leaving work, managing challenges after return to work, and staying at work. In 2016 we will be launching the first stage of the project here at!
