We are…

…The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). We want to rewrite the non-profit business model and have started by taking a hard look in the mirror. We have emerged with a renewed focus and commitment to advance patient and research outcomes through employee engagement.

We believe Culture is Everything

  1. ENGAGED employees are the key to our success
  2. Talented, high performing employees are driven by an internal standard of excellence and take a great deal of responsibility for their own success and the success of their organization
  3. High-performing employees need freedom to thrive
  4. We will never achieve our true potential unless our employees feel supported, valued and free
  5. Freedom begets boldness and we must be BOLD, willing to move forward with knowledge and conviction despite uncertainty, willing to share, try and perhaps fail without fear, willing to take calculated risks and THINK BIG
