|Census metropolitan area (CMA), 1, 23||Impaired driving incidents||Percent change in rate from 2001 to 2011|
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 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 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. The Oshawa CMA is excluded from this table due to the incongruity between the police service jurisdictional boundaries and the CMA boundaries.
4. Kelowna, Moncton, Peterborough, Barrie, Guelph and Brantford became CMAs in 2006, as such, percent change in rate is calculated from 2006 to 2011.
5. Gatineau refers to the Quebec part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
6. Ottawa refers to the Ontario part of the Ottawa–Gatineau CMA.
Note: Counts are based upon the most serious violation in an incident. One incident may involve multiple violations. Rates are calculated on the basis of 100,000 population (all ages) based upon July 1st estimates from Statistics Canada, Demography Division.
