Find a Cancer Trial in Canada:
You can start your search for a clinical trial on website using the search tool. Search for a clinical trial by cancer type, province, drug, keyword or phrase or you can do an advanced search using other selected options. Share, save or print the trial details and review them with your doctor or care team. Only a doctor can refer you and enroll you in a clinical trial.
Patients may wish to consider taking part in a clinical trial when they are offered treatment for their cancer. All new treatments must be tested in a clinical trial before they are approved by Health Canada.
