Northern Saskatchewan has the highest crime rate in the country compared to other northern regions, according to a report by Statistics Canada. The report says in 2013, police-reported crime rates in northern areas of provinces doubled the south, and crime rates in the territories were seven times higher. Co-author of the report, Mary Allen, says some of the difference can be explained by higher rates of mischief and disturbing the peace in the north. (The report notes that Nunavut, northern Manitoba and the Northwest Territories also had high levels crime, followed by Yukon and northern Newfoundland and Labrador.)
