Cancer Care Ontario Launches Ontario Cancer Profiles Online Tool

Cancer Care Ontario is pleased to announce the launch of Ontario Cancer Profiles, a self-serve, interactive tool that gives instant access to recent, customizable provincial and regional Ontario cancer statistics on select cancer burden, risk factor and screening indicators.

This tool was created to provide the public health community, healthcare providers, researchers and other stakeholders with Ontario cancer surveillance, population health and screening data that can inform the planning, design and delivery of regional cancer prevention and control efforts.

Use Ontario Cancer Profiles to:

  • generate customized Local Health Integration Network-level statistics, as well as comparable Ontario statistics, on cancer incidence and mortality, select modifiable risk factors and social determinants of health, and screening participation gaps for Ontario’s three cancer screening programs;
  • examine statistics on two indicators of interest simultaneously using the double map feature; and
  • produce downloadable maps or graphs, or export the data for further analysis.

On our website you will find a link to the tool, supporting documents (e.g., frequently asked questions) and downloadable Excel spreadsheets containing all of the statistics in the tool.
