Hi Vox‍ 

The Canadian Cancer Society has a Volunteer Driving Program. If you need a ride to your treatment and you would like to register for our Volunteer Driver Provided Program please call 1-800-263-6750.

Volunteer drivers provide return trips for patients from their home to treatment centres. They offer friendly support and kindness at a time when patients need it most.

New patients who register for volunteer driver provided transportation will be required to pay an annual registration fee.  Patients under the age of 18 are exempt.   If you are unable to pay the full registration fee, you may be eligible for assistance through our compassionate program.   We are committed to ensuring that no patient is denied a ride due to their inability to pay the entire registration fee

Hope this helps.
