Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer (OPACC)

About us

Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer (OPACC) is a registered charity whose overall goal, since our establishment in 1995, has been to be the parent voice for families with children diagnosed with cancer across the Province of Ontario.

Our three pillars of support are:

I. In-hospital support through our Parent Liaison program

II. Community support through community-based parent support groups and training of new Facilitators

III. Advocacy efforts to enable parents to advocate for themselves and to advocate for all families on a wider Provincial level, including: E.I. legislation for benefits to Parents of Critically Ill Children, reduced hospital parking rates, representation for childhood cancer survivors, supporting the educational needs of children with cancer, raising awareness of childhood cancer and of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (September), providing the caregiver voice to the pediatric oncology drug approval process, and more!
