About Cancer in British Columbia

Over the coming 15 years, projections produced by BC statistics suggest that the population of BC is expected to grow by 20 per cent or about 1 million residents. The number of seniors in BC (those aged 65 or older) is expected to be 72 per cent higher in 2027 compared with 2011, which amounts to an increase of about half a million seniors.

The growth and aging of the BC population will result in a dramatic increase in the number of new cancer diagnoses in the province. It is anticipated the number of new annual cases will grow by 45 per cent to almost 35,000 new cancer cases in 2027.

The increase in cases per year between 2011 and 2027 is expected to be more than 10,000. This increase is greater than the total number of cancers currently diagnosed annually in the Vancouver Coastal and Vancouver Island Health Authorities combined.

In 2017, an estimated 25,400 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in British Columbia.

For men in British Columbia, prostate cancer accounts for 10 per cent of all cancer diagnoses.

In 2017, an estimated 2,800 BC males will be newly diagnosed with prostate cancer and 620 will die of it.

In British Columbia, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death.

In 2017, an estimated 3,500 British Columbians will be newly diagnosed with lung cancer and 2,400 will die of it.

For women in British Columbia, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer.

In 2017, an estimated 3,800 BC women will be newly diagnosed with breast cancer and 640 will die of it.

In 2017, an estimated 3,600 British Columbians will be newly diagnosed with colorectal cancer and 1,300 will die of it.

In 2017, an estimated 1,850 men and 1,500 women will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer.

About Cancer in Canada

Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canada and responsible for over 30 per cent of all deaths.

An estimated 1 in 2 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetimes, and 1 in 4 will die from it.

In 2017, an estimated 206,200 new cases of cancer and 80,800 cancer deaths will occur in Canada.

Approximately 103,200 Canadian women and 103,100 men will be diagnosed with cancer in 2017.

Every day, 565 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer and 221 will die. Every hour, an estimated 24 people will be diagnosed with cancer, and nine will die.

Breast cancer remains the most common cancer diagnosed in women with 26,300 new cases expected in 2017.

Prostate cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men with 21,300 new cases expected in 2017.

Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer death for both sexes. It is responsible for approximately equal proportions of all cancer deaths in both males and females.

Four cancers – prostate, breast, lung and colorectal – together are expected to account for more than half (about 50 per cent) of all new cases diagnosed in Canada in 2017.

Cancer primarily affects Canadians over the age of 50, as 89 per cent of all new cases are diagnosed in people in this age group.

For both Canadian men and women, the median age of cancer diagnosis is between 65 and 69 years of age.

In 2017, it is estimated that 90 per cent of all cancers will be diagnosed in Canadians age 50 years and over, while 45 per cent will occur in Canadians 70 years of age and older.

Increases in the number of new cases are largely due to a growing and aging population.

In 2009, about 810,045 Canadians diagnosed with cancer in the previous 10 years were alive. This represented about 2.4 per cent of the Canadian population or 1 out of every 41 Canadians.
