Cancer Prevention

The Agency is working toward a vision of a healthy province free from cancer.  Our Cancer Prevention Department is committed to supporting your efforts to prevent cancer and live a healthy and fulfilling life.

Can cancer be prevented?

Research shows that at least 50 per cent of cancers can be prevented through a healthier lifestyle such as eating healthy foods, keeping a healthy body weight, staying physically active, practicing sun safety, avoiding the use of tobacco, and limiting alcohol consumption.

Studies have also shown that women who breast feed are at a lower risk for developing breast cancer. Breast feeding is also a natural way of providing infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development and may help reduce obesity in children.

Small changes in your everyday life can make a difference in your overall health.
