The City of Toronto has launched a pilot project to make free sunscreen stations available in its public parks.

This project is in collaboration with the 'David Cornfield Melanoma Fund' and the 'Douglas Wright Foundation' to help fight the rise of melanoma in Torontonians. Skin cancer is the common cancer in Canada and its deadliest form, melanoma, is one of the fastest rising types in Canada. This project sees free sunscreen stations installed in six of Toronto's waterfront parks.

Throughout the duration of the pilot, the melanoma foundations will provide the supplies, crew and funds to support the project while the city of Toronto provides the locations and administrative support. A number of cities have also taken the initiative to provide their citizens with free sunscreen stations, including Boston.
