Provincial cancer registries contribute annually to Canadian Cancer Statistics by collecting clinical and demographic data on newly diagnosed cancer cases. These are reported annually to Statistics Canada and added to the Canadian Cancer Registry (CCR). Demographic and cause of death information is reported to Canadian Vital Statistics Death Database (CVS:D).
