Cardiovascular Disease is Still the Leading Cause of Death in Canada *

Cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) is the leading cause of death and disability in Canada.

Over one third (36%) of all deaths in Canada (1999) were due to heart disease and stroke (cardiovascular disease or CVD) (78,942 deaths)

Between 1969 and 1999, death rates due to heart disease and stroke decreased by 56%.

Although death rates declined during the 1990s, the actual number of deaths among men and women has remained steady since the mid-1990s.
