With Toronto being one of the largest cities in Canada, it's often known for its high crime rates among fellow Canadians. However, it seems as if when compared to the rest of the world, Toronto is actually considered one of the safest cities globally. Economist Intelligence Unit's 2019 Safe City Index ranked Toronto as the 6th safest city in the world, and the safest city in North America.\nThe 2019 Safe City Index ranked 60 cities across the globe based on a variety of indicators including health security, infrastructure security, and personal security. During this study, it was revealed that Toronto was considered the safest city in North America.\nWith Toronto ranking sixth overall, the only other North American city that made the top ten list was Washington D.C, ranking just under Toronto in seventh place.\nAccording to the study, it was discovered that North American cities tend to have the best digital security across the globe, however, other cities were still considered safer globally.\nThe three safest cities in the world were all from Asia and included Tokyo, Singapore, and Osaka, Japan.\nView this post on Instagram Tag someone you want to visit Toronto with..

A stark contrast to the 2019 Safe City Index.\nHowever, it only gets worse for Toronto when it continues to get compared to other Canadian cities. According to the IMMI Group, the city of Toronto was also ranked the sixteenth worst major Canadian city by Crime Rate.\nIn fact, this study showcased that Toronto actually has a homicide rate of 2.57 per 100,000, bringing it way above the average Canadian rate of 1.68.\nSo while Toronto may be ranked as one of the safest cities globally, fellow Canadians are aware that when it comes to Canadian safety, Toronto doesn't quite reach our standards.\nThere are stories everywhere.
