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.
