Information in this table reflects data from municipal and provincial police services as well as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) covering 94% of the Canadian population. As such, this table excludes a small number of police services that do not report to the UCR2.2 Survey, among which are the municipal police services for Calgary, Quebec and Saint John. However, it does include any counts that occurred within the jurisdiction of police services not reporting to UCR2.2, but that were investigated by other police services that do report, such as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Ontario Provincial Police, or the Sûreté du Québec. Percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding. Total includes incidents where hate motivation was unknown.
