Welcome to the Quebec Metastatic
Breast Cancer Registry!
Our mission is to develop a metastatic breast cancer research infrastructure in Quebec to support projects that will lead to a better understanding of the disease and eventually to an optimization of clinical practice.
The project was launched in 2021 at an initiative of the Scientific Committee of the McPeak-Sirois Group, under the leadership of Dr. Sarkis Meterissian, surgical oncologist at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), as a pilot project, with three member hospitals of the Group: the MUHC, the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal and the CHU de Québec-Université Laval. During the course of 2022, all other hospitals in Quebec that are members of the Group will be able to contribute to the Registry.

This foremost initiative, in partnership with the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) and the Direction nationale du Programme québécois de cancérologie, is supported by the following partners:
