None at all. There are some petty crime issues, but usually it's things like items stolen from unlocked cars. Ottawa had something like 7 murders in all of 2012.My U.S. hometown is 1/2 the size of Ottawa and had 3x as many murders last year. - Jan 2013

There are occasional car break-ins in our neighborhood. Recently someone has been stealing Christmas lights off houses. - Dec 2010

Crime is very low compared with other cities of a similar size in the U.S. - Aug 2010

Not much at all...but there is petty crime. Murder rate is much lower than most similarly sized cities around the world (including the US). - Nov 2009
