Methodology
Maclean’s obtained annual crime data from Statistics Canada for municipal police services with the 100 largest populations in the nation. Using 2007 rates per 100,000 population for six crimes—homicide, sexual assault, aggravated assault, vehicle theft, robbery plus breaking and entering—Maclean’s calculated the percentage difference from the national rate for each of the six crimes. In consultation with StatsCan, we gave each crime equal weights and standardized the rates to obtain an overall score that measured each area’s percentage difference from the national rate. Data from Nunavut and the Northwest Territories are excluded from the provincial and territorial score calculations due to their extreme crime rate values, which are inconsistent with the distribution of the rest of the country.

The Most Dangerous Cities in Canada: Breaking & Entering

  1. as a vitim of b&e this week i would rank longueuil no 1.we have scum whose claim to greatest is stealing from seniors.there is a very high number of people on welfare in montreal and longueuil.we are poor living on a very small penison from the feds and prov.may the person rot in hell.

  2. Great information. Its interesting to see that British Columbia holds 13 out of the top 15 cities with the worst B&E. I wonder how many of those B&E were at properties that did not have a security system and how many at properties that did have a security system.

  3. whoa. does this mean i have to wear clothes to bed? because i really dont wanna fight a theif with my dong hanging out..
