Canadian Cancer Registry documentation

I’m trying to help a researcher who’s interested in using the CCR. For the moment all he needs is documentation (data dictionary, code book, or even just a variables list) to determine if it’s worth going the RDC route, but the items linked on the CCR page at StatCan are rather dated, the newest having a 2008 release date. Is there newer documentation available?

Attached is the 2015/2016 edition of the CCR Data Dictionary. The author division did clarify that the most recent documents will be made public and put online once they’re fully translated.
