1. A census metropolitan area (CMA) consists of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around a major urban core. A CMA must have a total population of 100,000 of which 50,000 or more live in the urban core. To be included in the CMA, other adjacent municipalities must have a high degree of integration with the central urban area, as measured by commuting flows derived from census data. A CMA typically comprises more than one police service.
2.CMA populations have been adjusted to follow policing boundaries.
3. Family violence refers to violence committed by parents, siblings, extended family and spouses.
4. Non-family violence refers to violence committed by acquaintances, friends, neighbours, authority figures (e.g., teacher, daycare worker), dating partners, criminal associates, business associates and strangers.
5. Rates are calculated on the basis of 100,000 populations. Populations based upon July 1st estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
6. Gatineau refers to the Quebec part of Ottawa-Gatineau CMA.
7. Excludes the portion of Halton Regional Police that polices the CMA of Hamilton.
8. The 2010 data for the Sherbrooke CMA are estimates based on 2009 data due to the unavailability of data in 2010.

10. Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa-Gatineau CMA.
