Public safety is an increasing concern for Torontonians.
If our city doesn’t feel safe, it won’t be a welcoming place for the workers our businesses need to succeed. Toronto has consistently ranked as one of the safest cities in North America, a competitive advantage in our position as a livable city and a desirable destination. In recent months, however, Torontonians are increasingly concerned about public safety.
The fact is that Toronto does remain, by and large, safer than many comparable jurisdictions, but there are areas of real concern and there is a need to address residents’ fears.
