About This Project

The Canadian Cancer Society’s Wheels of Hope program pairs volunteer drivers with cancer patients to give them rides to and from treatment. Last year in Ontario, more than 2,500 volunteers drove approximately 11.8 million kilometres to help almost 14,000 patients.

Since the mid 1950’s the Canadian Cancer Society has provided volunteer driver transportation assistance for people with cancer. Volunteer drivers provide return trips for patients from their home to treatment centres. They offer friendly support and kindness at a time when patients need it most.

About 2 in 5 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime. For many Canadians, getting to their life-saving treatment appointments will be a challenging feat. 1 in 5 cancer patients in Ontario have trouble getting to their treatment appointments.

In Ontario, through its Wheels of Hope patient transportation program, the Canadian Cancer Society matches volunteer drivers with cancer patients who need help getting to treatment.
