The Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre is a place of hope and vitality to those living with cancer and their caregivers.

Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre is a community-based, independent, not-for-profit organization serving the communities of Midland, Penetanguishene, Tiny and Tay municipalities of North Simcoe.

Our services are provided, free of charge, by caring professionals and trained volunteers, to cancer survivors, their families and immediate caregivers. You don’t need a medical referral as no treatments are provided.

We strive to provide meaningful programs and services to our members, to support your physical, social and emotional well-being. Wherever you are on your journey, here you will share hope, build strength and find courage.

Call the Centre to arrange a tour or to drop-in for one of our classes. Programs run at various times during the week.

Our vision
Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre will be recognized as the ‘go-to’ source of support, education and motivation for members, family caregivers and volunteers. We will be recognized as a place of hope and vitality for people living with cancer.

Our mission
To offer emotional and psychological support, education, and information, as a complement to medical treatment for people diagnosed and living with cancer.

“I truly believe the GBCSC has given so many in this community a sense of HOPE. A sense that no matter how terrible the journey is that there is a place that will embrace their fears, soothe their heartache and there will always be someone there to hold their hand and give them a hug.” – M
