Over its 30 year history, the mandate of the Canadian Oncology Societies has evolved, particularly in view of the development of several new oncological specialties associations such as the Canadian Association of Medical Oncologists and the Canadian Society of Surgical Oncologists to name a few.
With the various discipline-related mandates of the oncological subspecialties, the Canadian Oncology Societies has become a federation of oncological societies with a common voice in Oncology. The membership of the Canadian Oncology Societies includes the Canadian Association of Medical Oncologists (CAMO), the Canadian Hematology Society (CHS), the Canadian Society of Surgical Oncology (CSSO), the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists of Canada (GOC), the Canadian Association of Nursing in Oncology (CANO) and the Canadian Uro-Oncology Group(CUOG).
