Looking for top 10 causes of death in Canada!

I'm looking for some data about the most common causes of death in Canada; recently available statistics aswell as pre-1980 statistics. Any statscan gurus?

My statscan search is failing me. I'm only finding something for 1997 which doesn't suit my purposes... Who else is supposed to keep track of this kind of info?

This old post probably has what you seek on the site.

There's this, which is sort of awkward to use, but it points to this table, which looks like it has what you want.

on preview: Ok, sorry, my info is 1997 also. Ignore that.

I believe this is what you are looking for. The page has several tables of death rates by causes of death for 5-year periods from 1921-1974. They are in comma-delimited format, which is a bit unwieldy, but can be opened fairly easily in Excel.
