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.

The Ontario Health Study is a participating cohort of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP). CPTP is hosted by the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health with national funding from the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer. The CPTP is made up of five regional health studies across Canada:

The Partnership is also supporting the formation of a sixth cohort in Manitoba to expand the depth of CPTP’s national dataset and biological assets.
