UPDATE (December 21, 2020):

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

During this time, our offices will remain closed to the general public. However, we will still be receiving mail and packages but ask that all other communications be done through telephone or electronically.

Virtual Outreach

Support is at the heart of what we do, which is why we have developed a robust Virtual Programs section for our community.

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 was a tough year, but a good year for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada

As we look back on our accomplishments over the past year, it is encouraging to see how Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada evolved to meet the challenge of these times. 

Whether it was moving our walk program and volunteer celebrations to a virtual setting, changing our support service delivery, or funding new research – we got a lot done in a year when all bets were off.

Read all about it in our annual Hope In Action report – now available online in flipbook format.
