Help Health


Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way for someone—anybody—to help out in their community and participate in a way that could actually improve the lives of others, without having to donate any money?
There is. It’s called The Ontario Health Study, and it’s a long-term health study that is aimed at investigating the factors that increase individual and community risk of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, asthma, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. The more we know, the better each of us can be at preventing these diseases from striking our families, friends and people in our very own communities.

And you can help (if just for your kids’ sake) by simply participating in the Study. No money, just a few minutes of your time could change the world.

Previous studies like this have led to important discoveries in the past, knowledge that we take for granted now—like the fact that smoking causes cancer and that diabetes can increase a person’s risk of heart disease.

The Ontario Health Study is open to all residents of Ontario at least 18 years of age and initial enrolment simply involves completing a brief online questionnaire.

So donate a little time for everyone’s sake. Because health is the real wealth.

The Ontario Health Study is a not-for-profit study that has initially been funded by four organizations: the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, Cancer Care Ontario, the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion, and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer. The Ontario Health Study is also a participating cohort of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project which consists of a further four regional studies across Canada.
