​​​​​​The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre 2019 strategic plan outlines the foundational essentials and new strategic priorities that will enable Future Care Now. This plan was constructed with patients and families at the centre and grounded in co-creating exceptional care experiences for patients and providers, continuing our commitment to excellence in education, and accelerating progress in discovery. Our goals and objectives will be achieved over a number of horizons – some setting the foundation for growth and potential, and others pushing the boundaries of what is possible.

As work begins to put this plan into action, we recognize that the success of our strategy will depend on flexibility in our implementation plan. Our priorities will be adapted to take into account emerging issues and opportunities as well as our resources and talent pool. We look forward to working together to achieve these strategic priorities to enable Future Care Now at the Princess Margaret and bey​ond. The Future Care Now: Create Cancer Care 2030 ​​​​strategic plan will be published soon.


Future Care Now

New Strategic Priorities

Icon of Change and Innovation

Shape the future of cancer care.

Enabling future care now means challenging traditional models of care to create space for new possibilities. For patients, this means accessing state-of-the-art care when, where and how they choose. For providers, this means access to a sophisticated tool box of options that allows them to responsively and efficiently deliver the best possible care.

Icon of Change and Innovation

Advance cancer control locally and globally.

The breadth and depth of our expertise positions us to effect broad-scale change beyond our walls. We will work to expand our strategic partnerships with health care organizations, government agencies and industry to revolutionize how cancer care is organized, delivered, and funded.

Icon of Change and Innovation

Harness the potential of data science.

As cancer care rapidly evolves and we embrace new technologies, data will continue to grow exponentially. Investing in data science will enable us to be at the forefront of inventing and applying novel analytical approaches and predictive models that hold the promise of transforming care, education and research.

Icon of Change and Innovation

Drive cancer discovery.

The Princess Margaret has a rich history of leadership and innovation in advancing cancer care. We will continue to empower our clinicians and scientists across the full spectrum of basic, translational and clinical research to work collaboratively, spark creativity and accelerate discovery.

Icon of Change and Innovation

Support and champion the needs of people affected by cancer.

A cancer diagnosis affects many facets of an individual's life. We endeavour to enhance clinical care, education and research to better meet the full spectrum of patient and family needs across the cancer care continuum – from diagnosis to end of life and bereavement.
