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. In 2010, coverage for each CMA was virtually 100%, with the exception of Toronto (91%) and Hamilton (74%).
2. Includes mental or physical disability, language, sex and other similar factors. Examples of "other similar factors" may include age or political beliefs.
3. 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.
4. Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
Note: Percentages have been calculated excluding unknown motivations.
