Canadian Coding Standards for ICD-10-CA and CCI Core

The Canadian Coding Standards for ICD-10-CA and CCI is intended for use with the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Canada (ICD-10-CA) and the Canadian Classification of Health Interventions (CCI). The coding standards are intended to supplement the classification rules inherent in ICD-10-CA and CCI by providing additional information that could not be embedded into the classifications. The coding standards are updated on the same cycle as ICD-10-CA/CCI.

The coding standards apply to all data sets submitted to the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD) and the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS).

The Canadian Coding Standards for Version 2018 ICD-10-CA and CCI applies to fiscal years 2018–2019, 2019–2020, 2020–2021 and 2021–2022. The next coding standards release will be in 2022.

To see a comprehensive list of the changes to the coding standards from 2001 to 2018, see the Canadian Coding Standards Evolution Chronicle.

FAQ

The price you pay for an item depends on the type of organization to which you belong. Until you sign in, we do not know which price applies to you.

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.

If you want the downloadable version of an available publication and the price is free, as is often the case, you can simply download the file (usually a PDF) by clicking the Download link. If your browser does not support PDFs and you do not have a PDF viewer, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge at Adobe.com. If the publication is not available in a downloadable media type or the price is not free, you will have to add it to your cart so that you can order it. You must be signed in before adding an item to your cart, so if you have not already done so, you will be redirected to the sign in screen.

If you wish to get more information about a publication before deciding to add it to your cart, click the View link under the Details column for the version of the publication that interests you. This will give you more detailed information about that particular publication.

The History link only appears on the top menu bar once you have signed in. To sign in, enter your username and password in the top-right corner of your screen.
