Housing and immigration are the focus of the latest Statistics Canada Census 2016 data release.
Here are the highlights.
In Metro Vancouver, fewer residents are buying homes and when they do, they're less likely to buy single-family homes.
Home ownership in the region declined by 1.4 per cent from 2006 to 2016, while the percentage of those owning detached homes declined by 6.1 per cent.
Commercial real estate sales in the Lower Mainland have edged down from last year’s record highs while dollar values continued to rise in the third quarter (Q3) of 2017.
More than 36,000 Lower Mainland residents will receive blankets and warm clothing this winter thanks to donations collected during the 23rd annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive.
Metro Vancouver* saw modest home listing changes and steady demand in November.
From November 14 to 21, REALTORS® across the region will collect donations of blankets, sleeping bags, warm winter clothing for those most in need.
