Wequedong Lodge Cancer Screening Research Project

Wequedong Lodge of Thunder Bay partnered with the Indigenous Cancer Care Unit at Ontario Health (Cancer Care Ontario) and Sunnybrook Research Institute on a research project focused on better understanding barriers and facilitators of cancer screening for First Nations communities in Northwestern Ontario (NWO). This collaboration allowed us to dive deeply into cancer screening processes and experiences in First Nations community members and helped us to take the recommendations from this research forward to shape policy action.
