Community Connections is held every 3rd Thursday of the month and brings together patients, survivors, caregivers and friends. Many representatives from cancer related community organizations are here at ELLICSR to introduce you to resources and support programs that are available to you in the community and the Princess Margaret Cancer Program.

Whether you’re a cancer patient, family member, caregiver, or hospital staff – we welcome all! Come for one event or stay for the whole day.
