Where to get screened for Colorectal Cancer

Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT Test) Every 2 years

A FIT Test is a free screening tool used to detect early signs of colon cancer. It is a simple, at-home stool test which detects tiny amounts of blood in the stool which could be an indication of colon cancer. FIT Tests are recommended for adults over the age of 50, especially men who are less likely to be up-to-date in colorectal screening in Dufferin/Caledon.

To get a FIT Test, talk with your family doctor.

If you do not have a doctor, you can get a free FIT Test by contacting Health811. Once a FIT Test has been ordered, LifeLabs will mail a FIT Test package to an Ontario mailing address of choice.
