The Canadian Housing Observer presents a detailed annual review of housing conditions and trends in Canada and of the key factors behind them. The annual Housing Observer report examines the state of Canada’s housing from a variety of perspectives, combining national coverage with provincial/territorial and metropolitan detail. The report discusses influences on housing demand, current market developments, housing finance, housing affordability, and other topics.

“The Observer is unique in its in-depth review of housing conditions and trends, including developments — both domestic and international — that influence housing finance and housing market developments in Canada,” said Karen Kinsley, President of CMHC. “The Observer’s data provides insight into Canadian residential mortgage practices and housing market trends, while highlighting the importance of housing in this country.”
