Welcome to OPACC

Welcome to Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer's website!  On this website, you will be able to find information on resources for families and parents of children with cancer. 

OPACC was established in 1995 and is comprised of representatives from parent groups, parent contacts, and other family members from across the province. Our members are parents, guardians, survivors, or close relatives of a child/teen diagnosed with childhood cancer. 

OPACC is an independent registered charity; while we often partner with other organizations to provide services to our families, our programs are managed separately. OPACC receives no government funding and all funding for the development of our programs, services and special events (which are provided at no cost to our families) comes from the donations of generous organizations, businesses, foundations, and individuals.

We invite you to explore our website where you will find information about our organization, great resources and links to help you on your journey, and ways to make connections with others who understand what you are going through.

On the site, you will find information on:

Please also feel free to contact us directly should you require any information that you cannot find on this website. Our email address is: info@opacc.org
