Who We Are

Hundreds of people walk through our doors in Regina and Saskatoon every single day. Some of them come voluntarily – to take advantage of our proactive screening programs that save lives. For many others, it’s not a choice. They come to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (Cancer Agency) because of an intimidating diagnosis that has changed the course of their life.

All clients and patients can take comfort in knowing that as soon as they walk into our facilities, they are in the best, most capable hands. Our compassionate team of health-care professionals understands that every patient journey is unique and requires special treatment, attention and care. We strive to help you and your family feel safe, comfortable and supported, every step of the way. 

The Cancer Agency is a provincial health-care organization with a legislated mandate to provide cancer care for the people of Saskatchewan. Our 900+ employees are dedicated and work hard to deliver on that mandate every day. Our teams are also pleased to be leading revolutionary technologies that help make our treatment as effective as possible. From our early beginnings with cobalt therapy, to the sophisticated linear accelerators that deliver radiation therapy to this day, we have been working to improve cancer treatment for more than 90 years. 

The Cancer Agency operates: 

  • The Allan Blair Cancer Centre in Regina and the Saskatoon Cancer Centre, which focus on patient and family-centered care.
  • Cancer Patient Lodges in Regina and Saskatoon, providing a home away from home for rural patients and their companion or caregiver, so they do not have to travel long distances for treatment.
  • Community Oncology Program of Saskatchewan (COPS), together with our healthcare partners in 16 hospital locations in the province, to provide chemotherapy treatments closer to home.
  • Prevention and early detection programs, including screening programs for breast, cervical and colorectal cancers, including the breast screening bus which provides more than 8,000 mammograms annually to women in rural and northern Saskatchewan.
  • Cancer research performed by world-class scientists and researchers who provide laboratory, epidemiological and clinical research, including clinical trials.

 More than 73,500 cancer patient appointments were held at the Allan Blair and Saskatoon Cancer Centres in 2021.
