Leading the fight against cancer and chronic disease

With more than 225,000 participants from across Ontario, the Ontario Health Study (OHS) is one of Canada’s largest long-term health studies. The OHS aims to build a platform for researchers to use now and decades into the future to find ways to better treat and prevent cancer and chronic disease. By collecting health data and information through online questionnaires, physical measures and blood samples, the OHS provides researchers with a rich resource for researchers to investigate the complex interplay between genetics, lifestyle, environment and health.

The OHS team is currently developing the upcoming OHS Work History Questionnaire and making de-identified data and samples from the Study available to approved researchers in Ontario and internationally. Data collected from OHS participants are also being used in several projects underway as part of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project.
