Every day, the Canadian Cancer Society works to save more lives. With the support of thousands of Quebecers, donors and volunteers, we fight to enable our researchers to make more discoveries, help more people living with the disease, and also prevent more cancers.

Being active is one of the ways to lower the risk of getting cancer. That’s why the Canadian Cancer Society decided to encourage the young and not so young to integrate walking into their lifestyle. How? By developing a pedestrian school bus network across Quebec: the Trottibus Walking School Bus.

The CCS’s main responsibilities are to train the people in charge of the project, provide them with all the necessary tools, and help them in volunteer recruitment (when needed).

Thank you to all our partners
