About BC Cancer Cervix Screening.
BC Cancer Cervix Screening has oversight responsibility for cervix screening in BC. The program reminds
healthcare providers when their patients are due for screening, tracks adherence to screening

Pap tests are recommended every three years for women 25-69 years of age. Pap tests are provided by
primary care providers and trained nurses in the province and the tests are interpreted and reported by
the Cervical Cancer Screening Laboratory (CCS Lab) of the Provincial Health Services Authority.
