CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Vulvar cancer statistics
Specific numbers for vulvar cancer are not reported separately but are included in the general category other female genital organ cancers. This broad category includes similar cancers that are grouped and reported together. As a result, the statistics provided do not necessarily reflect the incidence and mortality for vulvar cancer.
It can take several years to collect and confirm cancer data, so the number of new cancer cases and deaths from recent years may not be available for some time. The most recent data available are provided below.
Incidence and mortality
Incidence is the total number of new cases of cancer. Mortality is the number of deaths due to cancer.
The most recent incidence statistics for other female genital organ cancers are from 2016:
- 1,020 Canadian women were diagnosed with other female genital organ cancers.
The most recent mortality statistics for other female genital organ cancer are from 2017:
- 368 Canadian women died from other female genital organ cancers.

Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
