Pap Tests

The Pap test is an important tool to help screen for cervical cancer. The Thunder Bay District Health Unit provides Pap tests free of charge to women who meet the Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) screening guidelines:

  • Age 21 or older who have engaged in any sort of sexual activity
  • Have not had a Pap test in the past three years
  • Have had an abnormal test and need testing more often

Women over the age of 70 who have not had abnormal results do not need a Pap test according to CCO screening guidelines.

To book an appointment for a Pap test, please contact the Sexual Health Clinic.
