Right to Know Campaign for Asbestos

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is working to reduce cancer incidence by educating workers in BC - and the British Columbia population at large - on ways to reduce their exposures to asbestos through their Community Right to Know Campaign. The campaign will also improve cancer screening by encouraging workers to sign up for WorkSafeBC's new exposure registry. The information obtained through the registry will be kept as a permanent record of a worker’s exposure.

AREA Fund provided a grant to the BC & Yukon Division of CCS in support of this community awareness campaign.
