Vacancy rate

The national vacancy rate for rental apartment units declined in 2019 for a third consecutive year to 2.2%, its lowest level since 2002, according to the latest Rental Market Survey report from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). Even though the overall vacancy rate in Toronto is 1.5%, that is up from the 2018 levels of 1.2%. Despite the increase, high homeownership costs coupled with tightened mortgage regulations have encouraged individuals in the GTA to continue to seek or remain in rental housing.
The average two-bedroom apartment rent was highest in Vancouver ($1,748) and Toronto ($1,562), Calgary ($1,305) and Halifax ($1,202) also remained above the national average, while Montreal ($855) continued to exemplify the relatively lower rent levels generally seen in Quebec.
