The Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics (CCJS) produced this research paper with the financial assistance of the National Crime Prevention Centre (NCPC) at Public Safety Canada. The NCPC has been a key partner in the development of spatial analyses of crime since 2003. The CCJS also wishes to thank the participating police forces and urban planning services for their interest in these projects.

These analyses are the result of close collaboration among a number of divisions of Statistics Canada. The author would like to acknowledge the outstanding analytical work of the many individuals who contributed to this series: Cory Aston, Frédéric Bédard, Mathieu Charron, Krista Collins, Robin Fitzgerald, Samuel Perreault, Marnie Wallace and Michael Wisener.

The various phases of the publication process for this paper were carried out with the assistance of Danielle Baum, Denyse Carrière, Judith Côté, Colleen Thompson and Suzane Tremblay. The author wishes to express her sincere appreciation for the support provided by this team throughout this analytical series.
