Safety

A sense of security and safety affects the quality of life in Toronto.

Why it matters:

For the seventh straight year, the Toronto Region had the lowest rate of police-reported crime among Canadian Census Metropolitan Areas:

    - The crime rate in the Region dropped by 7% in 2013, to 2,941per 100,000 population, the lowest rate of any of the 33

       metropolitan areas.

    - 80% of Torontonians feel at least somewhat safe walking in their communities at night.

2013 saw the highest number of youth killed by guns in a single year in more than 2 decades:

    - 7 teens aged 16 and under were killed – some in broad daylight, some in front of dozens of witnesses.
