The Altus Group Housing Report has provided unmatched market intelligence and forecasts on housing market activity across Canada for over 40 years.

About the report


Eight concise issues each year focus on a specific housing topic – such as the renovation sector, the mortgage market, the new condo apartment sector, first-time buyers or niche segments like seniors and student housing - with an incisive interpretation of what it means for various housing industry players. Four issues a year are devoted to our quarterly Housing Forecast - a short-term outlook for the new home sector at the National and Regional level and for selected major markets. Each issue includes valuable insights and commentary on the state of the housing market across Canada in an easy to read and understand format.
