Cancer Quality Council of Ontario

The Cancer Quality Council of Ontario (CQCO) is an advisory group established in 2002 to guide Cancer Care Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in their efforts to improve the quality of cancer care in the province. The Council also monitors and publicly reports on the performance of the cancer system.

What does the Quality Council do?

The Council works with Cancer Care Ontario’s Board of Directors to identify and assess gaps in cancer system performance and quality, and advises on planning and strategic priorities. Initiatives include:

  • The Cancer System Quality Index , a web-based report, published in partnership with Cancer Care Ontario, that tracks Ontario’s progress towards better outcomes in cancer care and highlights where cancer service providers can advance the quality and performance of care.
  • An annual Signature Event that brings together stakeholders and decision makers to address a quality gap to help us to better understand quality issues.
  • The Quality and Innovation Awards , sponsored by the Quality Council, Cancer Care Ontario and the Canadian Cancer Society – Ontario Division, which recognize significant contributions to quality or innovation in the delivery of cancer care.
  • Special studies that examine selected aspects of quality of cancer care in Ontario.
