On June 26, 2014, the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics released 2012 data on police-reported hate crimes in Canada. Police-reported hate crimes refer to criminal incidents that, upon investigation by police, are determined to have been motivated by hate toward an identifiable group. The incident may target colour, national or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, language, sex, age, mental or physical disability, or other factors such as occupation or political beliefs.

To provide further information on the June 26 publication, new CANSIM tables are being released containing data previously available upon request only. The information presented in these tables is from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey.
