Age-standardized death rate of cancer among Canadian males 1988-2017 This statistic displays the age-standardized mortality rate of all cancer among males in Canada between 1988 and 2012, with a forecast for 2013 to 2017. In 1990, the mortality rate for all cancer reached 333.4 per 100,000 population among males.
Cancer mortality rates in Canada

The mortality rate due to cancer in Canada has steadily declined over the last decades and the trend is expected to continue. The rate of male deaths per 100,000 population had fallen to 233.3 deaths per 100,000 population in 2017. Cancer mortality rate in females is estimated to reach 172.1 deaths per 100,000 population in 2017. There is also some variance in mortality rates among genders based on the type of cancer. Mortality rate for lung cancer among men is about 59.4 deaths per 100,000 and 45.3 deaths per 100,000 in women. Men are generally found to have a higher frequency of overall cancer diagnoses than women, including most types of cancers.

The five-year survival rate for most men also tended to be lower than for women. Based on cancer sites, it has been hypothesized that differences in genders such as tobacco smoking, viral infections, hormones, and metal toxicity may be one of the major causes of discrepancies in mortality rates. In 2017, there will be an estimated 34,200 cancer cases among Canadians between 50 and 59 years of age. About 24.4 percent of new cancer cases were located in Europe and 12.7 percent of cases located in North America in 2012.
