FIT: As of June 24, Ontario has started replacing the fecal occult blood test (FOBT) with the FIT as part of Cancer Care Ontario’s screening program for colorectal cancer. While both tests detect hidden blood in the stool, FIT is more accurate and easier to use.  

  • A positive FIT requires a colonoscopy
  • Patients who require a FIT positive colonoscopy will receive an appointment within two weeks
  • Results to primary care providers are sent within 1 business day
