Our Mission

Ovarian Cancer Canada champions the health and wellbeing of women with ovarian cancer and others at risk of this disease while advancing research to save lives.

We are filling a gap, we need to be here – for those living with ovarian cancer today, and the 3,000 Canadians who will be diagnosed this year. We are building research capacity, unlocking insights into rarer forms of the disease, addressing urgent needs, and bringing hope to people across the country.

Ovarian cancer research is a priority

We are driving ovarian cancer research in Canada faster than ever – changing the landscape of available treatment options. After decades without real change, improved outcomes are finally possible.
