Crime Data at Census Tract Level

A researcher is looking for crime data at the CT level for 2016 and 2011. As far as I know, data from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey is only available at the provincial or CMA level. I have seen some CT tabulations for Montreal (2001) and Toronto (2006) but that’s all. Short of custom tabulation, is there any other source for this data?

Subject matter has responded with the following:

“The Montreal and Toronto reports in question were really one off special analytical products, outside the normal geographical scope of the UCR.  

The lowest geography that the UCR is published at is the police service boundary level, then it goes to CMA, then CANPROV.”
