The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CCSN) is a national network of patients, families, survivors, friends, community partners, funders and sponsors who take action to promote the very best standards of care, support, follow up and quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.

CCSN is working with cancer patients and survivors to learn about health system complexities, connect with others to plan action, and act to promote best care, healthier survivorship and a place for the patient voice in healthcare systems decision-making.


Volunteer Opportunities

The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network is searching for a member of the legal profession to join our board. CCSN already has a pro-bono lawyer so this will not involve legal work for the group but an addition to the mix of professional skills among board members.
The new Board Member will understand and demonstrate a commitment to the organization’s mission and programs and have a particular interest in cancer as a survivor, family member, or as touching many in the community.
As all Board Members the member of the legal profession will
1. Keep up to date with issues and trends that affect the organization
2. Prepare for meetings by reading agendas, minutes, reports and other documentation required to actively participate in them
3. Attend meetings regularly
4. Contribute skills and knowledge by participating actively in meetings and committee work
5. Make inquiries when clarification or more information is needed
6. Gives an informed opinion (as do other professionals on the Board)
7. Is sufficiently familiar with legal documents (articles, by-laws, etc.) to note applicability during meetings
8. Be amenable to work in an informal manner with a small friendly group who support the mission and objectives of the CCSN moving forward
