Newfoundland and Labrador Cancer Care Registry (NLCCR)

Managed and operated by Eastern Health’s Provincial Cancer Care Program, the NLCCR is a population-based registry that collects, uses and shares health information related to cancer screening and the delivery of cancer care in Newfoundland and Labrador. The NLCCR consists of five separate programs, including:
  1. Breast Screening 
  2. Colon Screening
  3. Cervical Screening 
  4. Tumour Surveillance  
  5. Systemic Therapy Surveillance (also known as chemotherapy surveillance) 
The NLCCR aims to: 
  • improve patient care;
  • provide information to support decision making and identify priorities in health care;
  • improve understanding of cancer risks and the effects of cancer;
  • measure change over time;
  • positively impact cancer care delivery, research, and policy; and
  • improve the delivery of the screening programs.
The NLCCR is an authorized registry under Newfoundland and Labrador’s Personal Health Information Act, 2008 (PHIA).
If you have questions about the NLCCR’s authority to collect, use and share information please contact the Eastern Health Information Security and Privacy Office at 709-777-8025.
