Centre for Justice Statistics, Statistics Canada
The Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics (CCSJ), in cooperation with the policing community, collects police reported crime statistics through the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey (UCR). The UCR was developed to measure the incidence of crime in Canadian society and its characteristics. It can represent both the survey instrument itself or the aggregate form of the UCR data.
The basis for counting reported crime in the UCR Survey. An incident is a set of connected events that usually make up a reported occurrence. The reported incident is used in conjunction with Most Serious Offence (MSO).
Most Serious Offence (MSO)
Classifies an incident according to the most serious offence committed during the incident. In categorizing incidents, violent offences always take precedence over non-violent offences. Offences are then sorted according to maximum sentence under the Criminal Code of Canada.
Actual Incidents
When a crime is reported to the police, the incident is recorded as a ?reported? incident. Police then conduct a preliminary investigation to determine the validity. Occasionally crimes reported to the police prove to be unfounded. Unfounded incidents are subtracted from the number of incidents to produce the number of ?actual incidents.?
Persons Charged
Includes the number of people charged (not the number of charges laid) or recommended for charges by the police. A person who is simultaneously charged with more than one offence is counted according to the most serious incident, even if the offences occurred in more than one incident. In addition, persons may be counted more than once throughout the year; that is, individuals are counted on each occasion they are charged by the police. Note: In some cases a criminal incident may be solved months or even years after it was reported to the police. For this reason it is possible for the number of cases cleared to be different than the total reported actual incidents (Statistics Canada, 2004)
Homicide includes the Criminal Code offences of murder, manslaughter and infantcide.  Two primary criteria must exist for an offence to be considered as a homicide:  1) death of a human being and 2) someone must have caused that death.
First Degree Murder
First degree Murder includes the following:

1.) planned and deliberate murders
2.) murder of a police or custodial officer who is killed in the line of duty in the murder of a prison worker while acting in the course of his work therein.
3.) murder committed in the course of certain criminal acts (hijacking, kidnapping, forceable confinement, or sexual assault offences).
4.) murder committed by a person that has been previously convicted of first or second degree murder.
Manslaughter is defined as culpable homicide that is not murder, infanticide, or causing death by criminal negligence.
Infanticide is committed when a female person, by willful act or omission, causes the death of her newly-born child (under one year of age), if at that time she had not fully recovered from the effects of childbirth.
Robbery included theft with violence, or threats of violence, and theft while armed.
Refer to those aged 12-17 (inclusive).
