CanPath – the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow’s Health – is studying the biology and behaviours of Canadians to learn more about the causes of chronic disease and cancer for the good of our country and people around the world.
We’re expecting – and beginning to see – real, tangible results and outcomes and we’re focused on a not too distant future in which the actions we take today improve and save lives tomorrow.
Healthy Future Sask creates a platform and resource for fostering research in cancer and chronic disease prevention within the province.
Healthy Future Sask will add approximately 7,000 participants to the CanPath cohort. Together we will collect and connect valuable health data on the causes of chronic disease and cancer with researchers across the country for a healthy future.

The BC Generations Project is British Columbia’s largest-ever health study. The Project follows a cohort of nearly 30,000 BC participants who volunteer their health information and biological samples to help researchers learn more about how environment, lifestyle and genes contribute to cancer and other chronic diseases.
As Alberta’s largest health research study, Alberta’s Tomorrow Project aims to reveal what causes and could help prevent cancer and chronic diseases. Following the health of 55,000 men and women for the next 50 years, this long-term cohort study provides exceptional depth and breadth of detailed information to researchers worldwide. Thanks to more than a billion pieces of data and thousands of biological samples, scientists will be able to explore how lifestyle, genetics, and environment influence the health of generations to come.
The Manitoba Tomorrow Project (MTP) health research study aims to follow the health of 10,000 Manitoba residents for up to 50 years. The MTP is the newest member of the Canada-wide CanPath initiative. Together, we will collect and connect this valuable data with researchers across the country and worldwide to change the future of health research.
The Ontario Health Study (OHS) is an ongoing research study investigating risk factors that cause diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, and Alzheimer’s. Between 2009 and 2017, the OHS recruited over 225,000 Ontario residents over 18 years of age to complete health-related questionnaires online, with follow-up questionnaires administered over time to follow their health as they age. The Ontario Health Study also collected over 41,000 blood samples, helping researchers better understand the factors influencing health and quality of life.
CARTaGENE is a public research platform of the CHU Sainte-Justine created to accelerate health research. CARTaGENE consists of both biological samples and health data from 43,000 Québec residents aged between 40 to 69 years.
The Atlantic Partnership for Tomorrow’s Health Study, or Atlantic PATH, has recruited over 30,000 participants from all four Atlantic Provinces. The samples and information will help find new ways to prevent chronic diseases and diagnose them earlier when they can be easier to treat. This work is particularly important for Atlantic Canada, which has the highest cancer rates in the country; the disease truly does touch everyone living in this region, either personally or through family and friends.
