This article in the Economic Insights series highlights new data on the ownership of residential properties in Toronto and Vancouver. It focuses solely on residential properties owned by Canadian residents, and evaluates how the housing assets of immigrants differ from those owned by Canadian-born residents. It reports on the prevalence of immigrant ownership for different types of housing, including single-detached houses, semi-detached houses, row houses and condominium apartments, and compares the property values of Canadian-born and immigrant-owned assets. Information on the location, age and size of properties is used to assess differences in the relative value of immigrant-owned housing.
