Infographic of Average Rent Prices Across Canada

Highest and Lowest Rent Prices (Averages)

No surprise here! Vancouver dominates with the most expensive rental prices in Canada. The real estate market in the Vancouver area has skyrocketed over the past few years driving the rent up with it.

On the other hand, Quebec City as well as Montreal and surrounding areas have not had such a great run within the real estate industry causing much lower rent prices in that region.

Interestingly these vacancy rates do not correlate with the average rent prices across the country. Average lowest vacancy rates are spread out throughout the country. However, the province of Saskatchewan is seeing the highest vacancy rates.
