The strategy includes a range of cancer screening, treatment, and support services delivered as close to home as possible.

The Centre for the North project is being delivered as a public private partnership. The BC Cancer Agency has contracted with Plenary Health to design, build, finance and maintain the new centre for 30 years, ensuring it is built on time and on budget. Construction of the Centre for the North began at the end of July and is expected to be complete by September 2012.
