Print financial assistance and other practical supports pathfinder

Support services websites

The BC Cancer website's Practical Support pages include many resources related to financial assistance, home support, and transportation and lodging. The list below includes links to those BC Cancer website pages, as well as other websites that provide information about services available to cancer patients and their families.

Community services locator

The Canadian Cancer Society community services locator is a directory that helps cancer patients, survivors, family and caregivers find the services they need.

Resources found in these Pathfinders have been chosen and evaluated by BC Cancer librarians with input from other BC Cancer staff members. Suggestions for additional resources for inclusion are welcome; however, the Library reserves the final right to decide which websites and resources will be included. See our Inclusion/removal policy.

Resources are reviewed on a regular basis, however, the Library cannot guarantee the function, accuracy, or currency of the websites and the information contained within them.

 The BC Cancer library system consists of a central library at Vancouver Centre (VC), and branches in Abbotsford (AC), Kelowna (SAHCSI), Prince George (CN), Surrey (FVC), and Victoria (VIC). All centres have patient resource collections in our Cancer Information Centres (CIC), and all centres have a professional collection on site. Professional resources for CN are housed in the adjacent UHNBC Library.
