In Alberta, patients may undergo genetic testing if they have a personal or family history of a known genetic disorder. Patients must be referred by a healthcare provider. If the patient qualifies for counselling, they will then meet with a professional to discuss whether or not genetic testing is right for them.

For more information about genetic testing in Alberta, visit Alberta Health Services.
