Gilda’s Toronto

Gilda's Club Greater Toronto logo

Gilda’s Toronto’s purpose is to help people live, while living with cancer. Comedy legend Gilda Radner believed that no one should face cancer alone. Instead, they should have access to complete psychosocial cancer support from communities with shared experiences. Led by highly qualified experts, our innovative programs and services offer personalized and specialized support to those suffering the emotional and psychological impacts of a cancer diagnosis. This would not be possible without the support of a diverse group of professionals, partners and communities who share our vision.

With the help of cancer care partners and providers, Gilda’s Toronto continues to foster diversity, equity and inclusion to support growing communities in the GTA and beyond. That’s why we have been a leader in innovative psychosocial cancer support for more than 20 years. And we are just getting started.
