Here’s the average cost of rent in major Canadian cities for December 2020

The final PadMapper rental report of the year has arrived and little has changed in the market,

Much like the end of 2019, BC and Ontario continue to be the most expensive provinces to rent a room, or rooms, in Canada.

Montreal continues to be the only city outside of those two provinces to crack the top 10.

Vancouver has overtaken Toronto as the most expensive rental market in Canada, however, both cities have seen prices drop since this time last year.

Meanwhile, Abbotsford, Windsor, Hamilton and Halifax have all seen the price of one-bedroom units jump 5% since November.
