Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to get cancer

Imagine you're sitting beside someone on the bus, or next to your partner on the couch, or having dinner with a friend. Now imagine what it would be like if one of you had cancer. That’s the reality we face today. Nearly half of Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives and 1 in 4 are expected to die.



The good news is we can do something about it. About half of all cancers can be prevented and research continues to improve the outlook for people with cancer.

And we have made great progress over time. Because of investments in cancer control, including prevention, early detection and treatment, the overall cancer survival rate has increased from about 25% in the 1940s to 60% today.

But we have a long way to go and we need to invest in more research. Last year, 60% of high-priority research projects went unfunded. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
