UPDATE (August 17, 2020):

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is cancelling all in-person support groups and BrainWAVE/GOcervo events until 2021.

We are in the process of moving to a hybrid of at-home and in-office work, though our offices will remain closed to the general public. However, we will still be receiving mail and packages. We ask that all other communications be done through telephone or electronically.


Support is at the heart of what we do, which is why we have been working diligently to develop and expand our virtual programs with our #SupportAtHome initiative.

Our goal is to bring our support services directly into your home, as well as our pediatric BrainWAVE and GOcervo programs. More virtual programming means even in these trying times, no one affected by a brain tumour will walk alone.

Check out our programs on our website, and on our facebook page (En/Fr).

In response to the temporary closure of our in-person programs, many support groups have moved online to a virtual setting. Click here to see if there is a virtual meeting in your area. More information is below.

2020 Brain Tumour Walk exceeded all expectations

We could not have predicted the circumstances leading to our first Virtual Brain Tumour Walk, but the support we received from more than 3,600 walkers raising an incredible $1.1 million with donations still coming in.

We are extending our 27 Canadians Challenge until August 31, so you still have plenty of time to get your very own Brain Tumour Walk buff.

See our walk page for details.
