Go figure, Toronto is merely #26 on a list of the 100 most dangerous cities in Canada. To assemble the rankings of the most dangerous and safest cities, Maclean's magazine used 2006 crime data from the Canadian Centre of Justice Statistics.

- Prince George
- New Westminster
- Thunder Bay
- Fort McMurray
