 Since 1998, members of the Prince Edward Island Breast Cancer Information Partnership (PEIBCIP or the “Partnership”) have worked to ensure easy, accessible, reliable and up-to-date information about early detection, treatment and follow-up care is available to those affected by breast cancer on Prince Edward Island.

The Prince Edward Island Breast Cancer Information Partnership is comprised of volunteers representing various       organizations involved with breast cancer in Prince Edward Island.  Fifty percent of the Partnership’s members are breast cancer survivors.  The Partnership works to support all Islanders affected by breast cancer on Prince Edward Island, no matter their geographical location, cultural, age or educational circumstances, by providing easy access to timely, accurate and appropriate breast cancer information.

The Partnership also works to enhance the capacity of breast cancer stakeholders in Prince Edward Island to work together toward common goals.

The objectives of our work are:


  • To increase public support and professionals’ awareness of sources of support for breast cancer survivors.
  • To establish and maintain partnerships among representatives from key breast cancer organizations and institutions in Prince Edward Island, and, when appropriate, throughout the Atlantic Region.
  • To identify gaps or duplication in existing information or dissemination strategies.
  • To collaborate in developing new resources in response to the identified gaps.
  • To develop and maintain effective information dissemination strategies, particularly to newly diagnosed women and to people in underserved areas or groups.
