According to CCRA's latest report, $480M was invested in cancer research in 2015. The investment in operating grants accounted for a larger proportion of the investment than in previous years due to a decline in investment in equipment/infrastructure. There were significant increases from 2011 to 2015 in the investments made in research on prostate cancer, brain cancer, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia.

*Please note that a regrettable error was made on the initial PDF and the hard copy version of the English report. The Breast Cancer Society of Canada (BCSC) was omitted from the list of member organizations on the final page of the report. The PDF has been corrected and uploaded (Jan. 29/18). BCSC is a valued member and we apologize for this omission.
