IN BRIEF
 
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BREAST AND COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING IN CANADA
 
The Partnership has released reports looking at the performance of organized breast and colorectal cancer screening programs in Canada.

What are the key findings? Looking at national quality indicators, data provided by participating provinces and territories show that many Canadians are still waiting too long to receive a final diagnosis of breast and colorectal cancer. While wait times for follow-up procedures to confirm diagnosis are improving, they continue to fall short of national targets.

Why is this important? The Partnership works with jurisdictions across Canada to improve participation and enhance the quality of screening programs across the country. Increased consistency in data collection and reporting help programs track progress, identify quality improvement opportunities, and learn from other jurisdictions.
