Cancer Care on PEI

Cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed chronic diseases and is the leading cause of death in Prince Edward Island and Canada. Health PEI is committed to reducing cancer and its impact on all Islanders by advancing best-practice care across the cancer control continuum.

PEI Cancer Action Plan 2023-2028

The PEI Cancer Action Plan (15 MB) provides a path to reduce cancer risks, advance high-quality care and support Islanders impacted by the disease.  

What is the cancer control continuum?

The cancer control continuum describes a person’s journey from cancer prevention to early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and end-of-life care. Care may involve many parts of the health system, including supportive care to improve the quality of life during their cancer journey.
