CancerCare Manitoba has 3 organized cancer screening programs: BreastCheck, CervixCheck and ColonCheck.
Manitoba Health Cards are necessary to access health services, such as CancerCare Manitoba's Screening Programs. Clients should bring their Manitoba Health Card to their BreastCheck appointments.
Manitoba Health Cards should be kept up-to-date, an up-to-date address is especially important to receive correspondence from the Screening Programs.. For more information, to request a new card, or update your information, visit the Your Manitoba Health Card website.
BreastCheck is the primary provider of cancer screening mammograms in Manitoba. BreastCheck has four screening clinics which accept appointments year-round and two mobile clinics that travel to nearly 90 rural and northern communities on a rotating basis.
Use the resources below to promote the BreastCheck Clinics in your community.
This tab is updated regularly with upcoming Mobile BreastCheck Clinic information. Site information is released up to 6 weeks in advance. For more information about an upcoming or future site, contact us at 1-855-95-CHECK or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Group trips are when a community or organization coordinates a trip to send a group of women to a site to be screened for breast cancer. Group trips are the alternative method to providing access to breast cancer screening services in a method that differs from individuals accessing BreastCheck clinics. Transportation must be coordinated by the community/organization. For more information or to schedule a group trip, contact us at email@example.com

ColonCheck mails Manitobans home screening tests. Tests are completed at home and returned by mail to be analyzed at a laboratory. If tests are completed through the ColonCheck Program, we will continue to mail individuals a test every 2 years.
At this time, home screening tests can also be accessed through primary care providers.
