First Nations, Inuit and Métis cancer control strategy

First Nations, Inuit and Métis (FN/I/M) cancer control strategyThe First Nations, Inuit and Métis cancer control strategy aims to help reduce the cancer burden for First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities and improve the experience of patients.

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer works closely with patients, partners, communities and cancer service providers. The goal is to advance culturally relevant and people-specific cancer control initiatives that best reflect their needs and priorities.

Ensuring the patient voice is heard is core to the work that we do. In 2009, a national forum was held with First Nations, Inuit and Métis patients, families, stakeholders, cancer agencies and the National Aboriginal Organizations. The aim was to identify gaps and priorities in cancer care across the country. The result of the forum was the development of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Action Plan on Cancer Control.

The perspectives of patients, survivors and families guide the work of our cancer strategy. This ensures that it is grounded in the realities of those most affected by cancer.

Imagine in 30 years:

  • fewer people developing cancer
  • more people successfully treated in culturally appropriate ways
  • a better quality of life for people during treatment and beyond
