April is the month to fight back and an opportunity to show people living with cancer that they are not alone.

The Canadian Cancer Society is currently seeking energetic, passionate, and outgoing volunteer canvassers to be the face of the Canadian Cancer Society in communities and workplaces during the Daffodil Campaign.

Canvassers have a great passion for the fight for life, and are able to go door to door in their communities or collect donations either in person or through online giving pages from their friends, family, co-workers, clubs or associations.
