As part of its plan to track health outcomes among nearly 30,000 British Columbians over several decades, the BC Generations Project has launched a new Follow-Up Health & Lifestyle Questionnaire.
Can early signs of cancer be detected through a simple blood test? The CANDACE study has been approved to recruit eligible participants from the BC Generations Project cohort to assess the usefulness of an experimental new technology.
The BC Generations Project has unveiled a fresh new look for its website. More than just an update of its technology and design, the new website reflects an important transition in the Project’s purpose and activities.
The BC Generations Project has met an ambitious goal to collect baseline blood and urine samples from more than 10,000 additional people throughout BC.
Our study members have so many personal reasons to lend their support to the BC Generations Project. We received a wonderful message recently from a dedicated participant.
The BC Generations Project is planning a questionnaire that asks study members questions that will help researchers learn about their environmental exposures. But what do we already know about the various chemicals, substances and occupations that may contribute to cancer in humans? We provide a summary.
Joining the BC Generations Project is now easier than ever, thanks to a new process that allows participants to complete their entire intake procedure online. The online procedure replaces the paper-based consent and questionnaire, which participants previously completed by hand. Not only does the new process save on printing and mailing costs, it increases the quality and accuracy of the data.

The BC Generations Project is pleased to announce that we have recruited our 20,000th participant for Canada’s largest-ever cancer prevention study – Langley resident Bob Almasi. Bob visited our Abbotsford assessment centre on March 5, making him our milestone participant!
Thanks to fantastic support from Fraser Valley residents, the BC Generations Project’s pop-up assessment centre in Abbotsford has been a huge success. By the time we close our doors on March 15, almost 1,200 new participants will have visited our assessment centre. We recently welcomed BC’s Health Minister Michael de Jong to tour our facility and meet a project participant (with video).
The results are in for the BC Generations Project’s recruitment activities in 2011. More than 10,000 British Columbians stepped forward last year and generously donated their time for cancer prevention!
