Long-term Desired Outcome
Early education regarding sun safety has been studied and proven to decrease the number of sunburns in children and have a positive impact on future decisions concerning sun safety.
Furthermore, the early detection of skin cancers, particularly Melanoma, provides the best opportunity for successful treatment. While skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, it is also one of the most preventable.
The goal of our GoSafe Sun Safety Education Program is to reduce the occurrence of skin cancer in Canada and to ultimately eliminate skin cancers through education, awareness and advocacy.
