First Nations and Métis Cancer Surveillance Program

From 2014- 2017 the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency worked together with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations and Métis communities on a cancer surveillance program.

As participants began to identify needs around cancer prevention and early detection the program changed its focus to better support the communities.
