Abstract
This report presents findings from an environmental scan that was conducted as part of a larger Survivorship Project by the Rebalance Focus Action Group of the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer. The Survivorship Project aims to move a national cancer survivorship agenda in Canada forward in the coming years. The scan consisted of both a literature search as well as individual interviews with 47 key informants with a threefold purpose to:
(1) Explore the nature of and extent to which cancer survivorship conceptualization, research and practice is undertaken in Canada
(2) Identify some of the key Canadian contributors to cancer survivorship undertakings
(3) Identify resources from the literature that may prove useful in future cancer survivorship efforts in Canada
