YOUR IMPACT

NEARLY 1 IN 2 CANADIANS WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER.

THE PRINCESS MARGARET OFFERS REAL HOPE.


206,152 Canadians
will be diagnosed with cancer
this year

Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

 

Canadians 50 years of age and older
will make up almost 90% of
new cancer cases.

The rise in cancer cases is primarily being driven by an aging and growing population. As more people live into old age, the number of cancer cases will continue to rise.


80,752 Canadians
will die of cancer this year

This makes cancer the leading cause of death in Canada. Great progress has been made so far in the fight against cancer, but there is more that must be done.

At The Princess Margaret, personalized cancer medicine is at the heart of our vision: Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime. This is an overarching whole-person approach to patient care. It’s about the right treatment for the right patient, at the right time. Detecting cancers early leads to better outcomes. We have been discovering new biomarkers and developing new molecular imaging technology that can visualize even the smallest cancers.
