1. A census metropolitan area (CMA) consists of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around a central core. A CMA must have a total population of at least 100,000 of which 50,000 or more live in the core. To be included in the CMA, other adjacent municipalities must have a high degree of integration with the central core, as measured by commuting flows derived from census data.
2. A CMA typically comprises more than one police service. Populations have been adjusted to follow policing boundaries.
3. Coverage for each CMA exceeds 90% except for the following: Winnipeg (88%), Hamilton (75%) and Edmonton (70%).
4. Includes mental or physical disability, language, sex and other similar factors. Examples of "other similar factors" may include age or political beliefs.
5. Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa-Gatineau CMA.
Note: Percentages have been calculated excluding "unknown" motivation.
