Road to recovery: Cancer in the COVID-19 era

Actions needed and solutions from across Canada

people thinking togetherThe COVID-19 pandemic has intensified pre-existing pressures and created new challenges for Canada’s cancer system. These challenges must be addressed to ensure timely access to screening, diagnosis and treatment for people across the country; to protect the mental health and well-being of cancer care providers; and to enhance the system’s capacity to deliver equitable, high-quality services.

Doing so will require policymakers and cancer system players to focus on several key areas now and over the long term — drawing on and adding to the many examples of innovative, practical actions already being taken across the country.
