Cancer Care Ontario is pleased to announce the release of Ontario Cancer Statistics (OCS) 2016, a report which describes the changing burden of cancer in Ontario.
Reporting on more than 30 years of data from the Ontario Cancer Registry, OCS 2016 provides a clear picture of cancer in this province, focusing on the incidence, mortality, relative survival and prevalence of the disease. The report was created to support decision-makers, the public health community, healthcare providers, researchers and others in planning, investigating, measuring and monitoring population-based cancer control efforts.
On our new website you will find:
- An accessible PDF version of the report
- PowerPoint decks containing figures from the report
- An infographic with key statistical highlights
OCS 2016 is the flagship report of Cancer Care Ontario’s Surveillance and Cancer Registry department, and will be published every two years going forward.
