Thunder Bay maintained its title as the murder capital of Canada in 2018,  For the third consecutive year - and the fourth time in the last five years


The city reported the second-highest score under the national violent crime severity index, at 159.7, trailing only Winnipeg (161.4) in the category, which measures the overall volume and severity of the violent crime. The figure is nearly double the Canadian average of 82.4 among census metropolitan areas. 

On a per-capita basis, Thunder Bay Police investigate missing person reports at a rate nearly five times higher than their counterparts in Toronto.
Figures released this week by the Thunder Bay Police Service show there were 850 missing person reports last year, or about 732 per 100,000 population.

 In 2018, 44 people died of opioid overdose in Thunder Bay.

It’s made Thunder Bay the highest per capita opioid death rate in Ontario.

The 44 deaths were a 40 per cent increase from 2017, a year in which Thunder Bay also held the highest provincial rate.

Between July 2017 and June 2018, nearly 3,900 naloxone kits were handed out by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit and local pharmacies,
