In Canada, the October 2010 average of 5-1 / 2 was $ 1,083 per month, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 2016 Rental Market Report .

Quebec, Canada’s affordable rent champion

According to data from Rentseeker and CMHC,  eight of the 10 Canadian cities with the lowest monthly cost of housing are in Quebec. The other two are in New Brunswick.

The 10 cities with the least affordable rents are all located outside of Quebec. Not surprisingly, Vancouver and Toronto are among them.

In January, Business Insider ranked Vancouver as the third most costly city in the world, while establishing that the “average home price increased by 11.8% in one year, a home”.

However, Metropolitan Montreal is the fourth most expensive city ($ 1631), behind Yellowknife ($ 1902), Wood Buffalo ($ 1705) and Oakville ($ 1714).
