Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women.

In 2009, an estimated 5,400 women will die from breast cancer in Canada.

One in nine (11%) Canadian women is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime (this means by age 90).

  1. Recently, I've read an article that noted that Canada has one of the highest survival rates for breast cancer in the whole world, leading with Japan and the US. It's great that we keep the statistics at good numbers although there is always improvement. Thanks for your stats, it's just sad that so many women have to deal with this terrible disease...

    Take care, Julie
