Welcome to CancerConnection.ca!
Our online community is a place where people facing cancer and their supporters can share experiences and build relationships to help them through their cancer journey.
Remember – post only information that you are comfortable with others seeing and knowing about you. We strongly recommend that you do not use your real name as the screen name that identifies you in the community.
Follow the guidelines below to help make participation a positive experience for everyone:
Our moderation approach:
Why we moderate
Our team of moderators work to keep the community welcoming, safe and inclusive.
How we moderate
All posts to the community show up right away. We do not screen community activity before it goes live.
This is called reactive moderation, which means Moderators monitor posts and also rely on our members to tell us about any inappropriate content. Throughout the website you’ll see Report buttons that alert us to that content. Moderating in this way means that we can keep the community running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so that support is available when you need it.
Views expressed in this community are solely the views of the members and do not represent professional recommendations, policy or advice of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Thanks for joining us!
