Coming soon: Experimental New Condominium Apartment Price Index

On February 15, Statistics Canada will release the first Experimental New Condominium Apartment Price Index (NCAPI). The new series complements the New Housing Price Index, which excludes apartment-style condominium units. The release of the Experimental NCAPI begins to close important data gaps in the measurement of residential property prices, by producing more comprehensive and representative price indexes for the new housing market.

The Experimental NCAPI will be the first product released on Statistics Canada's Experimental Corner. The Experimental Corner is a new area on the website where Statistics Canada will highlight innovative products that are experimental in nature.

The Experimental NCAPI series begins in the first quarter of 2017 and covers six census metropolitan areas. Data will be available in table 18-10-0162 on the day of release. The index methodology and data sources continue to be refined and tested. For these reasons, the indexes are considered experimental at this time.
