Data Access Requests

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and unprecedented situation, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA) has been processing limited research requests for the past few months. We are now moving forward with processing requests as per our normal processes, including setting up remote research accounts if needed. Please keep in mind there is now a backlog of requests to be processed and our capacity is still limited, due to staff assisting with patient/staff screening processes or other COVID related work. The result may be a longer time period to process requests and requests may not be able to be completed within short deadlines. The committee will look at prioritization of requests based on various determinants and will try to accommodate as best we can.

At this time, we will prioritize the following requests:
• summer student projects
• projects involving graduate or undergraduate students
• granting projects
• time sensitive projects with specific deadlines
• those deemed urgent for SCA clinical/business purpose
• requests related to the COVID-19 pandemic

All other requests will come through the normal process of approval and prioritization. Thank you for your patience as we restart this work.
