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. A CMA typically comprises more than one police service. Populations have been adjusted to follow policing boundaries. The Oshawa CMA is excluded from this table due to the incongruity between the police service jurisdictional boundaries and the CMA boundaries. In 2010, coverage for each CMA was virtually 100%, with the exception of Saskatoon (99%), Brantford (95%), Windsor (92%), Toronto (91%), Hamilton (74%), and Barrie (70%). Populations have been adjusted accordingly.
2. Incidents classified as unknown crime category were largely reported by police services that responded to the supplemental UCR2 survey. See Data Source section for further information.
3. Rates are calculated per 100,000 population.
4. Due to the variability in small numbers, percent changes have not been calculated for CMAs with less than 10 police-reported hate crimes in any given year.
5. Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
6. Gatineau refers to the Quebec part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
Note: Percentages have been calculated excluding unknown crime category.
