Request Screening Results

Results from the newborn screening blood test are sent to the hospital or midwifery practice that did the test, by mail and/or electronically through the Ontario Laboratories Information System (OLIS). 

A baby's parent, guardian or health care provider can also request that results be sent to a baby's health care provider. Please note that we are not able to send results to health care providers outside of Canada; for these requests we recommend contacting the birth hospital or midwifery practice.
