Ontario Cancer Statistics

Ontario Cancer Statistics 2016 is a report that comprehensively describes the burden of cancer in Ontario. It uses data from the Ontario Cancer Registry to provide a clear picture of cancer in this province, focusing on the incidence, mortality, relative survival and prevalence of this disease. This information is intended to support decision-makers, the public health community, healthcare providers, researchers and others in planning, investigating, measuring and monitoring population-based cancer control efforts.

Designed as an easy-to-use reference manual, the report is comprised of five key chapters that can be downloaded individually.

Also available for use is an infographic summary of the key report highlights, pre-populated PowerPoint slides with figures from the report and the Ontario Cancer Profiles online tool.  Ontario Cancer Profiles allows you to examine the incidence and mortality of all twenty-three cancer types found in the report, over person, place and time and to create a view of the statistics that suits your individual needs.
