Clinical Trials

The Canadian Cancer Trials Group (CCTG) supports national and international multicentre phase I-III cancer clinical research trials aimed at improving the survival and quality of life of cancer patients across all cancer types. The scientific agenda for the group is developed by clinical researchers across Canada and beyond, includes trials of new cancer agents, novel radiation and surgical techniques, as well as interventions to improve patient quality of life.

If you are a CCTG member and need to access the full trials pages please click here.

The links below will take you to pages that list all the current CCTG trials with a brief description. If you are interested in volunteering for a trial we suggest that you discuss the opportunity with your care team.

If you are a patient or caregiver and are looking for other information about clinical trials a complete listing of clinical trials being conducted in Canada, including the locations where they are being conducted, can be found here: Canadian Cancer Trials.  And if you are interested in learning about participating in a clinical trial more information can be found here: www.itstartswithme.ca

Successful $30 million Canadian Cancer Society grant renewal for the Canadian Cancer Trials Group

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) has renewed its support of the Canadian Cancer Trials Group (CCTG) with a five-year 30-million-dollar commitment to the national research network. The grant renewal represents a continuation of CCS’s largest research investment, which began in 1980 when they helped create the Canadian academic research group. "CCS is proud to continue to provide core funding for CCTG, and we’re incredibly grateful to our donors who make this support possible," says Dr. Stuart Edmonds, Executive Vice President of Mission, Research & Advocacy at CCS. "With an international reputation for running Canada’s most impactful cancer clinical trials, CCTG’s work benefits not just people with cancer in Canada but around the world." The grant renewal involves a rigorous review process that includes a comprehensive grant submission and site visit with external reviewers looking at all aspects of the Group’s work and impact on clinical trials research. The grant will support CCTG strategic objectives, and the development and conduct of trials.
