Through the ComPARe study, we know that about 4 in 10 of all cancers in Canada can be prevented through healthy living and policies that protect the health of Canadians. These figures are available to use in presentations about the ComPARe study, cancer cases in Canada and cancer prevention.

Figures may be used with the following suggested citation:

About the ComPARe study

The Canadian Population Attributable Risk of Cancer (ComPARe) study estimates the number and percentage of cancer cases in Canada due to modifiable lifestyle, environmental and infectious agent risk factors. The ComPARe study also estimates how changes to these risk factors through prevention could affect the number of cancer cases in the future.
