The Canadian Rental Housing Index is a comprehensive database and interactive map that provides an accurate picture of the rental housing situation in cities, regions, and provinces across Canada.

The data used is provided by Statistics Canada using information from the 2016 Census.

The Index continues to serve as the first of its kind in Canada, examining issues of income, affordability, and overcrowding in more than 800 cities and regions across all of Canada’s provinces and territories.

It provides housing planners, non-profit developers, and local and regional governments with the information they need to plan for the future of rental housing in their region.
