 Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC) provides support services to young adults affected by cancer in their late teens, 20s, and 30s. We offer web-based services and face-to-face retreats and conferences. We will connect with any young adult you meet who is eligible to our services to see how we can help.

These initiatives include:
- Localife – peer-led activity-based groups for young adult cancer patients/survivors and supporters to connect with their peers
- Retreat Yourself – a weekend retreat for young adult cancer patients/survivors and supporters to get together and discuss issues related to their cancer
- Retreat Yourself Adventure - provides young adult cancer patients/survivors and supporters a chance to tackle survivorship issues on an Adventure that will push their limits and challenge them physically and mentally
- Survivor Conference - annual conference that brings together young adult cancer patients/survivors and supporters to learn useful tips to live a healthier and happier life.
- The Big Cancer hookup! – annual webcast showcasing young adults and their real-life cancer stories
- We Get It – video series addressing relevant issues for young adults. Videos include information on: delayed diagnosis, disintrajectorization, isolation, fertility, independence, relationships and survivorship
