Did you know ... 14 Canadian women die from breast cancer every day!

We believe that raising awareness for breast cancer is vital. 
Breast Cancer Society of Canada community pop-up kiosks are held in various communities across Canada. Our intention is to connect at local shopping centres and community events to share information about ground-breaking breast cancer research and breast health.
You’ll see our Breast Cancer Society of Canada tables and signs at selected centres. Weather permitting, our teams can be found both indoors and outside.

Look for us in retail locations across Canada.
