How Safe is Your Neighbourhood?
Feeling safe inside our homes is one of the most basic human needs. Without a sense of security, it’s difficult to truly enjoy time with family or even sleep well at night. It’s nearly as important to feel safe just outside our doors. Close-knit neighborhoods give us a sense of community, along with a space for evening walks and children’s play.
Whether you’re considering moving to a new neighborhood, or want to know more about where you currently live, a little research goes a long way. Our up-to-date Crime Heatmap can bring to light important facts about your neighborhood’s safety.
