The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-driven organization in Canada dedicated to creating a future without breast cancer. Our investments in innovative and relevant research and education have led to progress in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. Since 1986, we have been at the forefront of a nationwide movement supporting and advocating for the breast cancer community. The Foundation works together with a passionate and generous network of individuals and organizations across the country that share and support our vision. Through donations, fundraising events, sponsorships, corporate partnerships, and volunteer efforts, the Foundation has invested $300 million towards this work – work that would not happen otherwise, and that is making a meaningful difference.

At an operational level, the Foundation carries out its work across Canada through the efforts of its five business units and their staff and volunteer resources: four regional offices in Atlantic Canada, Ontario, Prairies/NWT and BC/Yukon, and one Central Office in Toronto.

The Prairies/NWT Region has four regional offices, spanning the communities of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and NWT with the Regional administrative office located in Edmonton.
