Shares The Hottest And Coldest Rental Markets In Vancouver & Toronto

One Year After COVID-19: How Rent Has Changed In Canada

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and TORONTO, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- has published the newest Q2 2021 Quarterly Rent Report for both Vancouver and Toronto. The online rental platform, which collects and aggregates rental market data, is proud to present the reports as a free resource for its community of renters and landlords.

Inside the 23-page reports, you’ll find new data that shows how Vancouver was the only city that saw a positive rebound (+3%) in rental prices for an unfurnished one-bedroom (Q2 2020 vs Q2 2021). You’ll also see the return of Gen-Z renters to the Canadian rental market and shifting preferences towards larger suites for rent.

But the majority of the report offers a neighbourhood-by-neighbourhood snapshot – encompassing all listing types, to showcase the changes in asking rents during Q2 2021. The report also looks back at where the market was a year ago during Q2 2020.

Dissecting the rental markets of both Metro Vancouver and the Greater Toronto Area, these in-depth reports provide key insights about each part of the city. They demonstrate the places that are heading towards recovery and those that are still in a slump.
