As New Zealand’s leading cancer charity, our role is to advocate for effective cancer control laws and policies on behalf of our communities.

What is a submission?

A submission is a written statement given to decision-makers such as the Government or regulatory authority.

When decision-makers are conducting an inquiry or introducing new policies and legislation, they will call for public submissions.

Submissions are a way for the people of New Zealand to have a say and influence decision-making.

Cancer Society submissions

We make submissions to the Government and other key decision-making agencies on a range of national issues relating to cancer control.

Submissions are a valuable opportunity for us to present an evidence-based position on actions the Government and others can take to reduce the impact of cancer.

We welcome and encourage community members to contribute their views.
