The Haida Gwaii Cancer Care team works in close collaboration with the BC Cancer Agency to provide islanders with timely access to cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. The team consists of local physicians, nurses and pharmacy technicians with specialized training in oncology.

Most people who need chemotherapy can choose to receive it on Haida Gwaii, at the X̱aayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay – Haida Gwaii Hospital & Health Centre. Radiation therapy and some forms of intensive chemotherapy require travel to a more specialized medical centre (usually in Prince George, Vancouver or Victoria).

For more information on how to connect with the Haida Gwaii Cancer Care team, please contact your family doctor’s office at your nearest Health Centre.
