  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202301200002
    Description: The validity of survival estimates from cancer registry data depends, in part, on the identification of the deaths of deceased cancer patients. People whose deaths are missed seemingly live on forever and are informally referred to as “immortals”, and their presence in registry data can result in inflated survival estimates. This study assesses the issue of immortals in the Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR) using a recently proposed method that compares the survival of long-term survivors of cancers for which “statistical” cure has been reported with that of similar people from the general population.

  • Table: 84-537-X
    Description: This electronic publication contains life tables comprising life expectancy and related estimates by age and sex for Canada, the provinces and territories. Detailed estimates (by single year of age) have been produced for Canada and all of the provinces, except Prince Edward Island, based on two types of complete life tables: three-year estimates (for periods of consecutive three years) and single-year estimates. Aggregated estimates (by five-year age group) have been produced for Prince Edward Island and the three territories separately based on abridged life tables (three-year estimates).

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202300100001
    Description: Cancer survival estimates provide insights into the effectiveness of early detection and treatment. The stage of cancer at diagnosis is an important determinant of survival, reflecting the extent and spread at the time of disease detection. The recent extension of the Canadian Cancer Registry death-linked analytic file from 2014 to 2017 now offers an opportunity to provide more up-to-date net survival (NS) figures and to profile, for the first time, five-year NS estimates for Canada (excluding Quebec). This study presents five-year stage-specific cancer and five-year NS estimates for the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X202100900002
    Description:

    This study is the first comprehensive evaluation of progress in cancer survival for all cancer types combined in Canada. The results span the complete time period of the Canadian Cancer Registry and are unaffected by changes in the age, sex and case-mix of cancers over this time. Specifically, predicted Canadian net cancer survival index (CSI) estimates for the three-year period from 2015 to 2017 are presented and compared with corresponding actual estimates dating as far back as the 1992-to-1994 period. Comparisons are made for both sexes combined and for males and females separately. Further insight is provided by the determination of the most influential cancer and sex combinations and the leading cancer types within each sex, in regard to changes in the CSI since the periods of 1992 to 1994 and 2005 to 2007.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201800900002
    Description:

    This report provides predicted estimates of net survival (NS) for the 2012 to 2014 period. NS estimates for durations of 1, 5 and 10 years are derived for 30 of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in people aged 15 to 99. Five-year age-standardized and age-specific estimates for 2012 to 2014 are compared with corresponding figures for cases diagnosed 20 years previously.

    Description:

    This article examines age-specific patterns in the national rates of newly diagnosed cases of pancreatic cancer. Age-specific measures of survival from pancreatic cancer are also examined.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201600714645
    Description:

    The data are from the Canadian Cancer Registry, with mortality follow-up through record linkage to the Canadian Vital Statistics Death Database. Increases in five-year relative survival ratios between 1992-to-1994 and 2006-to-2008 were calculated by age and sex for all leukemias combined and for each of the main types.

    Description:

    This product presents current and historical cancer incidence and cancer survival statistics in Canada, as well as links to the Cancer Record and Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR) procedures manuals.

    The Annual Cancer Incidence in Canada tables provide information on the number of new cases and the rates of both cancer tumours and patients from 1992 onwards, by five-year age-groups and sex for all Canadian provinces and territories.

    The Cancer Survival Statistics tables provide site-specific five-year observed and relative survival estimates for cases diagnosed from 1992 onwards. In addition to age-specific and age-standardized national (excl. Quebec) estimates, all ages (15 to 99 years) and age-standardized provincial estimates are available.

    The Cancer Record is a newsletter for cancer registries in Canada. Its purpose is to improve the quality and consistency of data submitted to the CCR.

    The compendium of Canadian Cancer Registry procedures manuals set out the rules for reporting cancer data to the CCR for all provincial and territorial cancer registries.

    Links are also provided to other Statistics Canada data on cancer. The health regions cancer rates are part of the Health Indicators. The Comparable Health Indicators present information on health status and health system performance, including cancer incidence age-standardized cancer.
