Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Each year in Canada, 27,400 new cases will be detected and nearly 5,100 women will die. This means that one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime2

More than ever, National Bank is committed to raising awareness and fighting breast cancer. As a partner of the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation for more than 15 years, National Bank has donated nearly $7 million to encourage research and support people affected by the disease. Thanks to screening techniques and the development of new treatments, the mortality rate has been declining since the 1990’s2. Let's continue to invest in this initiative, in solidarity. 

How can I get involved?

Get screened, educate the women around you, and support the community.

Maintain your financial health while overcoming illness 

When an unexpected event occurs, such as a critical illness, we don't always realize the impact it may have on our personal finances. Together, let's break the taboos and encourage more women to manage their finances in the event of illness. 

When diagnosed: How to manage your finances following a diagnosis?

Through hardship: The different support measures offered

In remission: How do you turn new projects that are important to you into reality?

"Chemotherapy is very difficult to overcome. I found workshops where we shared, laughed, and cried together, and we encouraged each other. It has been an extraordinary support for me from the foundation."
