The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership) is working together with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and partners, and cancer service providers to improve the cancer experience of First Peoples throughout the continuum of care from prevention to end of physical life or survivorship. To accomplish this goal, there are currently (2015) six strategic Partnership initiatives with multiple projects, working with First Nations, Inuit and Métis cancer patients, communities and organizations.

First Nations, Inuit and Métis Cancer Control Initiative

The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Cancer Control Initiative aims to advance improvements in continuity of care, in a culturally responsive and safe way, with and for First Nations, Inuit and Métis cancer patients residing in rural, remote and isolated communities by March 2017. The focus of the initiative is on improving supports provided at the time of diagnosis, and at several points throughout care including patients’ return from treatment centres to their home community.
