Historical Context


Cancer Care Ontario has been creating multi-year cancer plans for 10 years, each plan building on the last to address current challenges and opportunities to improve services.

Our 2005–2008 plan was the first comprehensive provincial cancer plan anywhere in Canada. It focused on building system capacity to meet the growing needs of cancer patients.

Our second plan, (2008–2011), tackled wait times and quality of care, expanded prevention and screening efforts, strengthened quality improvement and performance management, and increased our focus on the patient experience.

The 2011–2015 plan continued to transform cancer services across Ontario. It included a more focused approach on prevention, early detection, cancer control from the patient perspective, and research-informed investments.
