Prevent Cancer Now will be holding a cancer prevention conference May 24 to 27, 2007 in Ottawa to raise awareness and foster a national movement to help prevent environmental and occupational cancer. 

The non-profit organization has active participation from the labour movement and is pushing governments to adopt a cancer prevention model that looks at eliminating carcinogens from the workplace, environment and home.

The conference’s four goals are to:

·        Develop a proclamation of action for cancer prevention.

·        Foster a Canadian movement of groups and individuals with common goals for cancer prevention at the local, provincial and federal levels.

·        Heighten media awareness about primary prevention.

·        Provide tools and strategies to assist local groups with public education campaigns.
