Ren­ting in Canada

In most Cana­dian cities, web­sites like Craig­slist, Kiji­ji, ou Pad­Map­per are the best sources of ren­tal listings.

Fin­ding a place to rent in Cana­da can take some time. Nation­wide, Cana­da had a ren­tal vacan­cy rate dans 2012 des seulement 2.3 pour cent. As long as vacan­cy rates remain low, you should allow a lon­ger per­iod to find a ren­tal unit than you might expect.

While ren­tal prices vary signi­fi­cant­ly by city–and by neigh­bo­rhood within a city–the fol­lo­wing ave­rages may help with your bud­ge­ting. Nation­wide, the ave­rage rent for a two-bedroom apart­ment in mid-2012 was $887.

Dans 2012, l' most expen­sive cities for ren­ters in Cana­da were Van­cou­ver, Toron­to, Cal­ga­ry, Otta­wa, Vic­to­ria, and Edmon­ton. The fol­lo­wing table shows the ave­rage month­ly rent for a two-bedroom apart­ment in each of these communities:
