There was no significant difference in suicide death rates between Middlesex-London and Ontario.

There appears to be an upward trend in rate of deaths from suicide in Middlesex-London between 2011 and 2016, although not statistically significant. Small counts of suicide create large confidence intervals and therefore a substantial change in rates would be needed to see a statistically significant difference.
