Pretty darn low.


Theft of ski and other outdoors gear... those would be the major crimes. An occasional bar fight maybe.

Petty crimes of opportunity, or those fueled by alcohol. Just like Acajack said.

Slim. There are very few grizzlies in the Squamish-Whistler-Pemberton-Lillooet regions (less than 70) and they try to avoid humans. Sightings have been deep in the remote back country regions, not near towns. Anyone sighting a grizzly in those regions is required to report it to wildlife conservation authorities.

The back country areas from Squamish to Lillooet have lots of black bears and cougars, few grizzlies and wolves so there's more likelihood of hikers having a run in with black bears and cougars than with grizzlies and wolves.

Throughout all of BC the black bears and cougars are more easily habituated to humans and therefore more bold about leaving back country regions and coming right down into the towns and villages residential areas.

Essentially zero. But be careful of this place in Squamish. Get a few cocktails in them, they get a bit rowdy...
