Canada has over 60 Prostate Cancer Support Groups that meet once a month. This Richmond group in British Columbia is founded in 2013 by volunteers and focused on providing help to Chinese-speaking men, but everyone is welcome. We speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin, meet on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Seniors Centre of Minoru Centre for Active Living (7191 Granville Avenue, Richmond, BC V6Y 1N9 Multipurpose Room 1 (1033)). Join us for the professional presentation and talk to other men and family members who have been dealing with prostate cancer for weeks, months or even years.

No registration is required and all ages are welcome. Please swipe your Facility Pass ($36/year for seniors 55+ or spouses) or pay a $5 drop-in fee at the front desk when arriving for each session.

If you want to chat one on one with a survivor, you may drop in our walking club. The Richmond Blue Walkers walk 5-10 km on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am-11 am, along the beautiful river dykes and parks in Richmond (Walk in the Richmond Shopping Centre during the rainy days or cold seasons).

Prostate Cancer Study from Australia 澳大利亞前列腺癌研究

One in three men have concerns about their sexual health (e.g. erectile dysfunction) after

prostate cancer treatment. Many men are reluctant to get help for their sexual concerns, and

when they do, often men do not continue with treatment.

To date there is little research to help us understand men’s concerns about their sexual

health after prostate cancer and how they prefer to address these concerns. Our online Men

and Sexual Health – Prostate Cancer study will explore men’s concerns about their sexual

health, what contributes to their decisions to seek support, and from whom they prefer to

receive this support. This is an international study which is supported by cancer control

organisations, health professionals, and universities in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and


The Men and Sexual Health - Prostate Cancer study is an online survey that will take

approximately 30 to 40 minutes of your time. The survey asks about your sexual concerns,

side effects after prostate cancer treatment, quality of life, decisions to use services, and the

services that you prefer.

If you are aged over 18 years, have had treatment for Prostate Cancer and would like to

share your experience and help other men affected by prostate cancer please type in the

following URL into your web browser.

In addition to this, in the survey we will ask your permission to contact you again to complete

another survey in 6 months and 12 months so that we can understand if you’re sexual

concerns and need for support services change over time.

Please note: If you are receiving this info from your local PCCN support group in Canada

please note that this is not a Prostate Cancer Canada led study. Prostate Cancer Canada

is not responsible for any personal or contact information you may provide to the study, nor

the results of the study.
