Canada isn’t considered a dangerous country or contains dangerous places. On the contrary, it is classified among the safest countries in the world.
But even the safest countries have a share of crime, and in Canada, some regions are certainly more dangerous than others.
According to the McLean annual report, the most dangerous places in Canada are Thompson, Manitoba.
Note that this report analyzed 237 cities and communities across Canada.
Communities are ranked according to the Crime Severity Index (CSI), the Canadian statistical measure of all crimes reported by the police, which takes into account the scale and seriousness of the crimes.
