The focus of Cancer Care Ontario (CCO)'s renewed prevention strategy is to provide evidence-based support and policy advice for risk factor reduction and cancer prevention. As cancer shares several key modifiable risk factors with other major chronic diseases, CCO's prevention efforts also benefit the goals of chronic disease prevention. CCO's ability to successfully provide policy advice is dependent on timing and the ability to respond to current and emerging policy and legislative issues.
