Toronto Neighbourhood Crime MapToronto home buyers want safe neighbourhoods, but what does a safe neighbourhood look like? How do you know what’s really going on behind closed doors?

The Toronto Police Services publicly shares this information (click here to access the interactive dashboard). It’s not for the faint of heart (and definitely not for my mother to see).  It’s hard to believe what goes on right around us actually.

If you’re looking to get into Toronto’s real estate market and looking for a safe neighbourhood for your family, it’s better to be armed with the facts. So grab your cup of coffee, lock the doors, and check out the Top 10 Worst Toronto Neighbourhoods for Crime.
