Our Vision: Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime
Our Mission: To raise and steward funds to deliver breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world.
The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation began raising funds for cancer research at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in 1982, and since then has raised well over $1 billion for this world-leading centre.
The Foundation has pioneered many successful types of fundraising including mega lotteries and large-scale events recruiting thousands of participants/fundraisers such as our Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend to End Women’s Cancers and Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.
Our fiscal year runs from April 1 to March 31, and in our fiscal 2014, we raised over $102 million. The Foundation was one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Cultures for the Broader Public Sector (2013).
