Community-based cancer support
Wellspring is a network of community-based support centres that provide support for people living with cancer.
Each Wellspring centre is a separate legal entity, responsible for its own governance and funding and for program offerings that are tailed to the unique needs of the local community. The three centres in the Greater Toronto area (Wellspring Downtown Toronto, Wellspring Westerkirk House, and Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House) are governed by one Board of Directors. Other Ontario Wellspring centres are located in Niagara, London, and Brampton. Other Alberta Wellspring centres are located in Calgary and Edmonton
All Wellspring centres adhere to Wellspring’s values, model, and quality review processes.
Wellspring charges no user fees, and requires no medical referral. Programs and services are available free of charge, on both a drop-in and registered basis, for anyone living with cancer, at any stage.
Wellspring Cancer Support would like to acknowledge the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories across Canada on which we live, work and play of the many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We offer our gratitude to the many indigenous communities for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honor those teachings.
