About

In April 2008, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Cancer Care Ontario, launched ‘ColonCancerCheck’, Canada’s first population-based provincial colorectal cancer screening program. The goals of the ‘ColonCancerCheck’ program are to reduce deaths from colorectal cancer through an organized screening program and to improve the ability of doctors to participate in comprehensive colorectal cancer screening.

The doctors receive a Screening Activity Report that help them to manage colorectal screening for their patients aged 50-74 and to easily identify patients that need follow-up. By participating in this program, it is hoped that it will maximize our patients’ chances of detecting colorectal cancer early.
