The Alberta Colorectal Cancer Screening Program is a provincial screening program that works to educate and increase the number of Albertans, aged 50 to 74, who have regular colorectal cancer screening using the Fecal Immunochemical Test. This is a home stool test (poop test) that finds blood in the stool. Screening is the best way to find colorectal cancer early.
- working with healthcare providers to support Albertans aged 50 to 74 in getting colorectal cancer screening across the province.
