Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP)

Ontario Breast Screening Program OBSP MammogramMMI is proud to be affiliated with the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP), that encourages women between the ages of 50 and 69 to undergo regular mammography screening.  Once enrolled in the OBSP program, you will be reminded to have regular mammography screenings until the age of 74.

To participate in OBSP, you must:

  • Be a resident of Ontario
  • Have not had a mammogram in the past 11 months
  • Must not have breast cancer
  • Must not have breast implants
