The purpose of the Cervical cancer control in Canada (CCCiC) website is to share information and resources regarding the prevention, detection and treatment of cervical cancer in Canada.

The website is maintained by the Pan-Canadian Cervical Screening Initiative (PCCSI), which is a network of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer.

We hope that this website will foster partnerships that collaboratively address issues concerning cervical cancer prevention and control.
