September 21, 2022
Today, Statistics Canada released data and analyses from the 2021 Census on housing and on Indigenous peoples.
With many Canadians facing concerns and difficulties about housing costs and availability, this release provides an important update on a variety of indicators related to finances and housing (e.g., affordability and shelter costs, mortgage payments, home values, subsidization). It also covers the qualities of family households, such as housing conditions, size, tenure, and suitability (i.e., crowding).
