General Population

Average Risk
Ontario residents, ages 50 – 74
Every 2 years

Ontario residents ages 50 to 74 with no symptoms or first-degree family history (parent, sibling or child with colon cancer) are encouraged to take the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) every 2 years. This free, easy, at-home screening test  is available from your healthcare provider, such as your family doctor or nurse practitioner.

Anyone who is not able to get a FIT kit from a healthcare provider can go to the Mobile Cancer Screening Coach.

People can also visit Health Connect Ontario or call 811 if they do not have a family doctor or nurse practitioner.
