Mandate and Goals

Thyroid Cancer Canada is working towards creating an environment in which people who are dealing with thyroid cancer, especially the newly diagnosed, are met with support and information.  Thyroid Cancer Canada draws on the medical community to provide a consistent and high standard of support for all individuals dealing with the disease.

TCC’s goals & objectives include facilitating communication among thyroid cancer patients, providing credible information about the disease, providing emotional support, and assisting thyroid cancer patients with voicing their needs to health care professionals and those who are responsible for health care policy.

TCC liaises with groups with similar or corresponding mandates.

TCC governs itself within the values and principles outlined in its By-Laws and Terms of Reference (available by request).
