Canadian Cancer Statistics
Canadian Cancer Statistics provides comprehensive surveillance statistics on cancer in Canada. The full publication is produced every second year and includes detailed statistics on incidence, mortality and survival by sex, age group, geographic region and time period for 20+ cancer types. In alternate years, a special report is released as well as current-year projected estimates of incidence and mortality.
The publication is written for health professionals, researchers and policy makers, but other audiences will also find the information useful.
Canadian Cancer Statistics is developed by the Canadian Cancer Statistics Advisory Committee in collaboration with the Canadian Cancer Society, Statistics Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada, with cancer data provided by the provincial and territorial cancer registries through the Canadian Cancer Registry.
