COVID-19 Update from Lung Cancer Canada
In an effort to protect our community and our staff from potential exposure to COVID-19, our office in downtown Toronto is closed until further notice. During this time, our staff will be working remotely and continue our efforts to provide the services that lung cancer patients and the community come to expect from us. We will continue to respond to inquiries through phone, and e-mail. Our website and social media platforms will be updated frequently.
We are here to help so please do not hesitate to contact us.
At Lung Cancer Canada , the health, well-being and safety of people affected by lung cancer is our priority. As the situation with COVID-19 is quickly evolving, it is important to ensure that you have accurate information.

If you are a lung cancer patient, you may be at a higher risk for more serious outcomes of COVID-19. Cancer is considered an underlying medical condition. Some cancer treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can weaken your immune system, making it harder to fight infections. The Canadian Cancer Society has information specific to cancer and the coronavirus.
