Definition:

"The Canadian Classification of Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Surgical Procedures (CCP) was originally developed by Statistics Canada in 1978 to meet Canadian needs for a procedural classification to be used in conjunction with ICD-9. CCP is divided into two parts: the Tabular List and the Alphabetic Index." (SOURCE: CIHI Web Site - Classification and Coding - ICD-9 / CCP and ICD-9-CM: https://www.cihi.ca/en/data-and-standards/standards/classification-and-coding/icd-9ccp-and-icd-9-cm - accessed October 22, 2015).

An alternative to the CCP is the procedure section of the ICD-9-CM. ICD-9-CM was used to record procedures in hospital discharge abstracts in Manitoba until 2004 when the Canadian Classification of Health Interventions (CCI) was implemented, accompanying the ICD-10-CA.
