sun safety


Not only is skin cancer the most common cancer here in Canada, it’s also one of the most preventable types.

There are three forms of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. The first two are grouped together as non-melanoma skin cancers.

(You can learn the signs of early melanoma here.) 


Whether you’re heading to the beach or simply enjoying a warm afternoon in the backyard, sunscreen, and protective clothing are your best bets to protect against a painful and damaging sunburn.
