Find information to help you and your family live better with a brain tumour.

A brain tumour diagnosis can have wide-reaching effects. If you find yourself in need of financial support for food, clothing, rent, utilities, or household items, there is support for you.

You may also find that you need childcare, disability or accessibility supports, personal care, or other community services. All provinces and territories in Canada offer a 211 Service with a searchable database and/or the opportunity to speak with someone who can connect you with necessary resources.

211 Services can be reached by dialing or texting 211, or through their website here: https://211.ca/

You can often find similar supports through your region’s government website. Additionally, the Government of Canada provides Income Assistance for a variety of demographics.

The Canadian Cancer Society also has a database of community supports, which can be found here: https://www.cancer.ca/en/support-and-services/support-services/find-services-in-your-area/?region=on

We hope that these resources support you as you move through this new land.
