About this Web Application
Launched in June 2014, this Web Application brought to you by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, has been designed to provide access to the latest available data and analysis measuring the quality of cancer control across Canada. Through a variety of system performance indicators and provincial comparisons, the Web App helps identify areas of cancer control across Canada that are doing well, and those requiring further improvement. This in turn helps inform opportunities for further research and analysis at the provincial, regional and local levels.
The Web App is accessible from multiple devices including mobiles, and provides a number of functionalities:
Browse the latest graphs and tables in an interactive and user-friendly manner. Data from previous years can also be accessed in the “Reports” archive section
View the content from different perspectives including cancer control domain and disease site
Download all graphs and tables, as well as the data from each chart for own analysis
Subscribe to stay informed and receive electronic updates on the latest available data and analysis
Share Your Feedback on how to improve the application via the available feedback form

About the Partnership’s System Performance Initiative
The Partnership’s System Performance Initiative is a national effort to identify aspects of the cancer control system that need to be measured or are under-measured, to define performance indicators, to collect valid and comparable data, and to report findings in an integrated manner that allows for synthesis of results and interpretation of patterns.
Findings are published in a series of reports targeted at the cancer control community, especially provincial cancer agencies, departments or ministries of health, clinicians, researchers, and cancer patients and their families. Peer-reviewed articles, presentations and workshops at conferences and, most recently, a web application also enable the dissemination of pan-Canadian system performance information. Such knowledge is intended to aid policy makers, health planners, researchers and clinicians in identifying best practices and opportunities for quality improvements in cancer control across Canada.

About The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer
The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership) was created in 2007 by the federal government with funding through Health Canada. Since then, our primary mandate has been to move Canada’s cancer control strategy into action and to help it succeed through coordinated system-level change across the full cancer care continuum—from prevention and treatment through survivorship and palliative care.
The Partnership achieves outcomes by working closely with national, provincial and territorial partners. This collaboration stimulates and supports the generation of knowledge about cancer and cancer control and promotes the exchange and uptake of best practices across the country to help those most affected by cancer. The outcomes we work toward are fewer cases of cancer, fewer Canadians dying from cancer and a better quality of life for those affected by cancer.
