Renting in Canada

In most Canadian cities, web­sites like Craigslist, Kijiji, или 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 в 2012 из только 2.3 процентов. 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.

В 2012, the most expen­sive cities for renters in Canada were Ванкувер, Торонто, Калгари, Оттава, Виктория, и Эдмонтон. The fol­low­ing table shows the aver­age monthly rent for a two-​​bedroom apart­ment in each of these communities:

  • Ванкувер $1,210
  • Торонто $1,164
  • Калгари $1,113
  • Оттава $1,104
  • Виктория $1,046
  • Эдмонтон $1,036
