Canada reports first-ever cancer stage data

The need for reliable pan-Canadian data on cancer stage was recognized more than 25 years ago. Data for at least 90% of Canadians diagnosed with breast, colorectal, prostate or lung cancers (2010 diagnosis year) in nine provinces are now available. This is the result of the Partnership’s investment in the National Staging Initiative and the efforts of our partners in the cancer control community. This report provides a first look at how these efforts can help us better understand cancer system performance and quality.
