Summary

The observations and viewpoints expressed in this publication are the sole responsibility of the authors; they do not represent the positions of CIRANO or its partners. [...] The final section of the report compares innovations in breast cancer diagnosis in Quebec to those in Alberta and Ontario, where diagnostic delays are shorter. [...] Improving Breast Cancer Diagnosis Pathways in Quebec (2023RP-22, Rapports de projets, CIRANO.) The authors would like to thank the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation for its financial support for this project. [...] Since Black, Asian and Hispanic people are most likely to develop breast cancer in their 40s (Stapleton et al., 2018), this is also an equity issue.3 This report responds to these concerns by providing context for the delays in breast cancer diagnosis in Quebec and reflections on opportunities to reduce these delays. [...] These data contain details about the number of mammograms and breast cancer diagnoses within the screen-eligible population but do not contain information on disease severity, patient demographics, screens without cancer diagnoses, and symptomatic patients outside of the screening program.
