It's that time of year again where men across the country will be growing out their moustaches and facial hair, all in support of the Movember Foundation, which aims to raise awareness towards men's health.

The organization originally started in 2003 where it grew a large following, and in 2007 it's official support in Canada was made by partnering with the Prostate Cancer Canada Organization.

The month long event hopes to bring light the importance of early testicular and prostate cancer detection through screening, and opening dialogue regarding the rates of male depression and suicide.

More information on how to get involved can be found at the Canadian Movember website.
