CPAC Report: Better Together Annual Highlights 2012/13

Messages from the Chair

The 2012/13 year marked the beginning of the Partnership’s second five-year mandate, a confirmation itself that the early work of having a national cancer control strategy is making a difference to all Canadians.

As I meet with our partners and stakeholders across the country, I hear concrete examples of how a collaborative approach to cancer control through the sharing of best practices and pooling of resources is effective in driving the change that will lessen the impact of cancer on Canadians. The effectiveness of a small-p partnership model was echoed in August 2012 when I attended the World Cancer Congress in Montreal, at which our international peers spoke highly of our partnership model as one to which other countries should aspire.

Our successes today, however, are only steps along a much longer journey. We look forward to broader and deeper impact as we move forward, with our partners, toward meaningful and measurable outcomes that will reduce the burden of cancer on all Canadians. As a cancer survivor myself, I know the importance of our work and I am confident we will achieve this goal. This was a year of growth and evolution at the Partnership. We embraced a new fiveyear strategic plan that will continue to bring about system-level change, which is a milestone along the way to reducing the burden of cancer on Canadians. We are always mindful that our work must make a real difference to people affected by cancer. To this end, we have developed a robust performance measurement strategy. It enables us to measure and track how the work is translating into impact. We are also expanding our focus on engaging with cancer patients. Their experiences and perspectives provide essential voices to our work, which includes improving the quality of the patient experience. As you explore the pages that follow, please remember that none of this work succeeds without true collaboration to address shared goals. We thank all those who are working with us, and who will work with us in the future, to drive Canada’s cancer control strategy forward.
