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 doesn’t have a healthcare provider can visit the Mobile Cancer Screening Coach or call Telehealth Ontario’s colon cancer screening line at 1-866-828-9213.
