Cancer Screening Resources Hub

Welcome to the Cancer Screening Regional Resources Hub – a one-stop resource for communications materials in support of Ontario Health (Cancer Care Ontario)’s screening programs. These materials can be used at any time, and are also intended to help support getting eligible people caught up on cancer screening tests during COVID-19.

You can use these resources to:

  • Support public outreach and awareness efforts
  • Increase the visibility and awareness of Ontario’s screening programs through your existing communications channels
  • Engage with the healthcare provider community in your region

We’ve worked to make materials available (where appropriate) in the most popular spoken languages in Ontario (according to Census data). These languages include Arabic, Farsi, Punjabi, Hindi, Italian, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Tamil, Tagalog, Urdu.

If you have any questions regarding these resources or require more information, please contact communications@ontariohealth.ca.

For additional resources on resumption of screening services during the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit the Cancer Screening During COVID-19 web page.

The following resources are available to support health care providers and staff, regional cancer programs and Ontario Health regions in cancer screening public awareness efforts. They can be used to communicate information about breast, cervical and colon cancer screening.
