Board Members Recruitment

For 31 years, Canada has known them as the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. But just as the research they fund is always evolving, the organization you know has also evolved to become Breast Cancer Canada. What hasn’t changed is their laser-focused commitment to advancing innovative breast cancer research – especially research geared towards precision oncology.

Breast Cancer Canada is poised to grow into a national organization with immense impact. The vision of ending breast cancer is one shared by many, especially those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. The organization realizes that it cannot achieve the dream alone. It needs the generous support of time, talent, and treasure from many to bring the shared vision to life. BCC gets closer to making this vision a reality through each partnership, including: breast cancer researchers, patients and families, community members, organizations, volunteers across Canada, Board members, and staff. It is through them and in them that BCC finds its voice, passion, energy, and momentum.
