1. A census metropolitan area (CMA) consists of one or more neighbouring municipalities situated around an urban core. A CMA must have a total population of at least 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 urban core, as measured by commuting flows derived from census data. A CMA typically comprises more than one police service.
2. Rates are calculated per 100,000 population using revised July 1st population estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
3. Includes three homicides committed in a detention centre in 2011.
4. Moncton, Kelowna, Peterborough, Barrie, Brantford and Guelph became CMAs in 2006. Average number and rate are calculated from 2006 to 2011.
