The Juristat article, "Safe Cities profile series: Key indicators by census metropolitan area," is now available. This profile series provides the most recent data on community safety and crime, and other social characteristics, for Canada's census metropolitan areas (CMAs) prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Life in Canada has changed since March 2020; however, the information provided in these profiles serves as a reference to understand and contextualize community safety before COVID-19.

Key indicators in these profiles include community safety and sense of belonging, self-reported experiences of victimization, and police-reported crime—which are based on results from the General Social Survey on Canadians' Safety (Victimization), the new Survey of Safety in Public and Private Spaces, and the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey. To complement community safety and crime data, CMA-level statistics from supplementary data sources are also provided, including population and demographics; education, employment and income; and housing and families.
