Patterns of Prejudice in Canada
Since 1982, the League for Human Rights of B'nai Brith has produced an annual report on the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Canada. Due to the constancy in definitions and criteria used in determining how incidents are classified and recorded, these statistics may be the best data available on the incidence of hate crimes of a particular category.
In 2000 there were 88 reported acts of vandalism across the country, a 42% increase over the 62 reported incidents in 1999. This is the second consecutive year showing an increase in reported acts of vandalism.
