According to data obtained from a Canadian Maternity Experiences Survey conducted in 2006, roughly ⅓ of B.C. males were reported to have been circumcised at birth. B.C.’s circumcision rate is among the lowest in the country – behind every province or territory where statistics were returned, with the exception of the Northwest Territories. The most common reason for the procedure was “Health and Hygiene”. Numbers in the Yukon Territory and Nunavut were too low to be recorded, and thus failed to make the cut.
