The Healthy Future Sask study will collect the following information and samples from participants:
CanPath has collected data from approximately 330,000 volunteer Canadians, including information about health, lifestyle, environment, and behaviour. The size of the cohort and the richness of its epidemiological, clinical, and biological data positions Canada amongst the world’s leaders in longitudinal cancer and chronic disease research. Large subsets of participants have also provided physical measures, mental health measures, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data, and biological samples such as blood and urine. Researchers can link CanPath’s harmonized and de-identified health and biological information to provincial and national administrative data repositories to support pan-Canadian research. Baseline and follow-up data from five regional cohorts have been harmonized across the country, creating a pan-Canadian resource of more than 2,800 measures of participant health and lifestyle factors. For more information on the data available as well as the process to access CanPath data; please visit the CanPath Portal.
