2% from 79 offences per 1,000 population the previous year, the ninth
consecutive annual decrease.
Winnipeg has always been one of Canada's most violent cities. One great example is that from 1981 to 2012, Winnipeg has been the "murder capital" 16 times, of every Canadian Metropolitan Area. Beyond homicides, Winnipeg consistently has the highest robbery rates, sexual assault rates and the highest violent crime index in general of any large Canadian city.
