Group Name: Young Adult Cancer Canada

Description: Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) is a national not-for-profit organization based out of St-John’s, Newfoundland. Our focus is on building a supportive community with and for young adults who received a cancer diagnosis between the ages of 15 and 39, and are currently aged 18 to 39 years old. We do this through a number of in-person programs and online resources.

At YACC we have a program called Localife that operates in certain cities across the country, Toronto being one of them. Localife is an activity-based group where young adult cancer survivors enjoy fun activities and connect with their survivor peers. It aims to provide regular opportunities for young adult cancer survivors and supporters to come together to enjoy fun activities and the benefits of peer support. The program is open to anyone who received a cancer diagnosis between the ages of 15 and 39 and are currently aged 18 to 39. Survivors may also bring one supporter (aged 18-39) to each event. It is truly a great program! In addition to the activities, annual conferences are offered.
