Canadian Housing Statistics Program: A toolkit for understanding housing supply

Released: 2023-10-25

The article "A toolkit for understanding housing supply," released today, draws together a variety of publicly available data sources into a toolkit of indicators that can be used by researchers, practitioners, and the public to describe housing dynamics from a supply-side lens. These data come from various programs within Statistics Canada and elsewhere, including the Canadian Housing Statistics Program. Data gaps are also identified.

The article then leverages this toolbox to describe trends in housing prices, supply, and key determinants of residential construction over the past 12 years in selected census metropolitan areas (Halifax, Montréal, Ottawa–Gatineau, Toronto, Edmonton, and Vancouver).


The article "A toolkit for understanding housing supply," part of Housing Statistics in Canada (Catalogue number46280001), is now available.
