Canadian Cancer Society Lodges
Cancer lodges run by the Canadian Cancer Society provide lodging for out of town patients and their families, who need to be close to a cancer centre
for treatment or tests. You must be independent in your daily living activities and/or have an escort to assist you.
The lodges are free for people with cancer and meals are included. There is a daily rate for a family member or support person. The lodges have limited space and reservations are recommended.
You can contact the Lodges directly to find out more or to register.
