About Cancer in Canada

Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 4 are expected to die from the disease. It is the leading cause of death in Canada and will be responsible for more than 82, 000 deaths in 2019, according to The Canadian Cancer Society.

The most common types of cancer in Canada based on 2019 estimates were lung, breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. Lung cancer being the leading cause of death with more fatalities than the other three cancers combined. However, the same publication showed that as a result of progress being made with lung and other cancers, the death rates have been decreasing.

Cancer targets all ages and all genders, but the risk does increase with age. The total number of cases expected in 2019 is 220,400.
