Questions About Canada Post Work Stoppage

Will I receive a home screening test?
If you received a letter stating that the test would be mailed to you in the next few weeks, be advised that the test will be delayed due to the postal strike. Unless you have called to say that you do not want a test:

  • we will mail your test when regular mail service resumes, or
  • you are welcome to pick one up in person from ColonCheck between the hours of 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday – Friday. Our address is:

    #5-25 Sherbrook Ave., Winnipeg. Manitoba
    (across from the Misericordia Health Centre)

Should I start the home screening test?
You can start the test if you are able to drop it off in person at one of these sites during normal business hours.

If you are unable to drop the test off in-person, wait to do the test until the postal service resumes again.

If you are not sure when to start or if you should start the test, please call us at 204-788-8635 or 1-855-95-CHECK (toll free)or email us at ColonCheck@cancercare.mb.ca.

I have already started the home screening test, now what?

If you have started the test and are not able to drop it off in-person, discard the test and:

we will mail you a replacement test when regular mail service resumes.

I’ve finished the home screening test, now what?
If you have a test that you have recently completed, it needs to be analyzed within 14 days of the first sample date. Drop it off in person at any of the sites listed here during normal business hours.

Did my home screening test make it to the lab?
If you have recently completed a test and would like to know if your test was received by the lab or what your result was, please call ColonCheck at 204-788-8635 or toll free at 1-855-95-CHECK.
