Communications and Public Affairs

CancerCare Manitoba ensures news about our programs, services and events reach our patients, staff, partners and the general public.

Media inquiries should be directed to Communications to arrange interviews. Our researchers, physicians and other staff are extremely busy, we can facilitate your access to a specialist or spokesperson.

Media visits to CCMB must be arranged in advance, and need to be coordinated by Communications. Any media with access to CCMB's facilities must protect the privacy, care and comfort of patients, their families, staff and volunteers.

Please contact us to request a copy or authorization for use of the CancerCare Manitoba logo.
