Screening for Chronic Diseases among Métis

This fact sheet explores self-reported use of preventive screening tests for diabetes, high blood pressure, and prostate, breast and cervical cancers, as reported in the 2006 Aboriginal Peoples Survey. It focuses on people aged 15 and over who self-identified as Métis. The reported use of screening tests by Métis people is compared with national guidelines. Consideration is given to those with and without a regular doctor and those living in different geographical regions. Non-Aboriginal data are provided for comparison purposes when similar questions were asked on the 2008 Canadian Community Health Survey.
