Cancer Centre

Welcome to the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre. If you are coming to the Cancer Centre for care, you likely have questions about what you can expect.

Our photo tour provides basic information about the process of receiving care and treatment at the Cancer Centre.

You may also find it helpful to refer to Cancer Care Nova Scotia’s Cancer Care: A Guide for Patients, Families and Caregivers. You will receive a copy of this guide in the mail or at your first visit.

Please see our searchable page for Capital Health Patient Information Pamphlets to find information about cancer and other topics.
