Four government-funded organizations are leading the Ontario Health Study: the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to conduct research on cancer; Cancer Care Ontario which is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to improve cancer services; Public Health Ontario which is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and is dedicated to protecting and promoting the health of all Ontarians and reducing inequities in health; and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, which is funded by Health Canada to coordinate national efforts to reduce the number of cases of cancer.

The Ontario Health Study is a participating cohort of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow’s Health (CanPath).
