Resumption of Cancer Screening Programs

With Saskatchewan Health Authority resuming services, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency is positioned to restart programs affected by SHA closures. The Screening Program for Breast Cancer has started screening mammograms again. We are sending invitation letters to people who are eligible or due for screening. Check out the FAQs for more information about breast screening and COVID-19.

The SCA cares about the safety and well being of our screening program clients. Precautionary measures are in place to minimize the risk of contracting or spreading the COVID-19 in SCA facilities. If you have any questions, please call the Screening Program for Breast Cancer toll-free at 1-855-584-8228 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Screening Program for Colorectal Cancer has also resumed sending out FIT kits in small numbers. As endoscopy units resume colonoscopy, those patients who were canceled will be rescheduled.

If you receive a FIT kit in the mail, you can now complete your kit and send it in to be analyzed. If you already have a FIT kit that you previously received in the mail, wait to complete your kit until you have received a reminder letter from the program asking you to do so. If you have any questions, please call the Screening Program for Colorectal Cancer toll-free at 1-855-292-2202 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
