Wellspring is a Canada-wide non-profit organization consisting of a network of community-based centres, each offering programs and services, at no charge and without referral, to anyone, with any type of cancer, at any stage in their journey.
Our centres are located in Calgary, Edmonton, Niagara, London, Stratford, (Downtown Toronto, at Sunnybrook, Oakville and Brampton). Each Wellspring centre is a separate legal entity, with its own charitable registration number, and is responsible for its own funding. The centres in the Greater Toronto Area (Wellspring Downtown Toronto, Wellspring Westerkirk House, and Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House) and the online centre Well on the Web, are governed by the same Board of Directors .
All are welcome to visit a centre without appointment. A Peer Support Volunteer will be there to greet you (weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.), to listen to your story, and help you with your most urgent needs and help you select programs that will be most beneficial to you.
Wellspring charges no fees and receives no government or other core funding. Programs and operations are made possible only through the generosity of donors and funds raised through sponsorships and special events.
