Canada has now surpassed 50 FLSs!
With the recent new additions to Osteoporosis Canada’s FLS Registry, we now have 52 FLSs in Canada.
Fracture Liaison Services (FLSs) began to be established in Canada in 2002 at St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. There has been slow progress since with the establishment of FLSs in 6 provinces at this point, including one province with universal access (Prince Edward Island). PEI is currently the only province in Canada where FLS is available for every resident who suffers a fragility fracture of the hip, wrist, shoulder or pelvis.
