Hereditary Cancer Clinic

The Hereditary Cancer Clinic is part of the Eastern Ontario Regional Genetics Program and is located at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. We specialize in the assessment of children, adults, and families with familial or hereditary forms of cancer predisposition. We offer genetic counselling, and genetic testing services if indicated. Through partnership with the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) we also provide women with a personal or family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer a personalized breast cancer risk assessment.

Our goal is to identify individuals and families who may be at an increased risk of developing specific types of cancer and to inform them about the appropriate prevention and screening recommendations available.

Who are we?

Our services are provided by a team consisting of specialized genetic counsellors, geneticists and 2 dedicated administrative staff.


We accept referrals from any physician or through the OBSP. Eligibility criteria for referral as well as referral forms are provided in the links below.
