Genetic services in the Algoma district are going through a transition.

Cancer referrals 


Please continue to fax cancer referrals to Algoma Public Health at 705-759-5789 (unchanged).

Non-cancer referrals


Please send all non-cancer referrals (i.e., general adult, pediatric, prenatal and pre-conception) to Genetics Counselling Services at Health Sciences North (HSN) in Sudbury. HSN will be in touch with you regarding counselling and assessment.

Although the referral is being processed through a central office, all efforts are being made to provide face-to-face services to those who need them in their home location.  

Further transitions are expected to the delivery of genetics service and we will keep you posted on these changes as they occur.

If you have any further questions please contact the Algoma Genetic Services at 705-942-4646 ext. 3123.

For questions about referrals to the Genetic Counselling Services at Health Sciences North, please call 1-705-675-4786.
