Mission Statement

Our mission is to support families of children diagnosed with cancer in Ontario, Canada


OPACC was established in 1995 by parents of children with cancer to support childhood cancer families in Ontario. Our three pillars of support are:

I. In-hospital and virtual, peer-to-peer, psychosocial support through our Parent Liaison program

II. Community support through community-based parent support groups and training of new Facilitators

III. Advocacy efforts to enable parents to advocate for themselves and to advocate for all families on a wider Provincial level, including: E.I. legislation for benefits to Parents of Critically Ill Children, reduced hospital parking rates, representation for childhood cancer survivors, supporting the educational needs of children with cancer, raising awareness of childhood cancer and of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (September), providing the caregiver voice to the pediatric oncology drug approval process, and more
