The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer are pleased to announce the results of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project initiative.
The Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP) is Canada’s largest population health research platform. It contains a wealth of data from more than 300,000 Canadians aged 35-69 who have volunteered to share information about their health, lifestyle, environment and behaviour over their adult lives. Nearly half of participants have also provided a biological sample. They have done so hoping to help researchers unlock the answers to why some people develop cancer and chronic diseases while others do not.
CPTP aims to create a legacy that will benefit both current and future generations by strengthening population research in Canada, by producing excellent evidence to inform health care improvements, and by offering the maximum benefit to the people of Canada and to the health systems on which they rely.
