Hate crime counts from the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Survey include both confirmed and suspected hate crime incidents. The table information reflects data reported by police services covering 99.7% of the population of Canada. It includes incidents where hate motivation was unknown. Under the authority of the Canadian Forces Provost Marshal (CFPM), the Canadian Forces Military Police Group (CF MP Gp) is now reporting incidents to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Survey. They have provided incidents going back to January 2020. Data from the Office of the CFPM are aggregated at the national level to account for small counts and to protect confidentiality. Currently, the Canadian Centre for Justice and Community Safety Statistics (CCJCSS) is developing the methodology for determining the population counts for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). Therefore, rates are not available for this release.
Incident-based Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (3302).
A census metropolitan area (CMA) consists of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around a major urban core. A CMA must have a total population of at least 100,000, of which 50,000 or more live in the urban core. To be included in the CMA, other adjacent municipalities must have a high degree of integration with the central urban core, as measured by commuting flows derived from census data. A CMA typically comprises more than one police service. CMA populations have been adjusted to follow policing boundaries. The Oshawa CMA is excluded from this analysis owing to the incongruity between the police service jurisdictional boundaries and the CMA boundaries. In 2021, coverage for each CMA was virtually 100%, except in Toronto (91%), and Hamilton (75%).
As of the 2016 Census, Belleville and Lethbridge became new CMAs.
Gatineau refers to the Quebec part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
Excludes the portion of the Halton Regional Police Service that polices the Hamilton CMA.
Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
Excludes the portions of the Halton Regional Police Service and Durham Regional Police Service that police the Toronto CMA.
Includes the Halton Regional Police Service and Durham Regional Police Service. May include a small number of offences that occurred outside of a CMA, as 6% of the population policed by the Durham Regional Police Service fell outside the boundaries of a CMA in 2021.
