It’s the first time the federal agency’s National Household Survey looked at condominiums, including renters and owners, but the trend in the housing industry seems to be that condo living is on the rise in urban centers.
Also clear is the condo trend is having a significant impact on Canadian home ownership levels which continue to steady rise, reaching 69% of households in 2011, the year the survey was done. Only 60.3% of households owned a home in 1971
The condo trend has clearly impacted cities, with 76.8% of condo units in the 10 largest census metro areas. Cities such as Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal accounted for 53.5% of all Canadian households living in condominiums.
Singles compromise a major chunk of the condominium market at 45.5% of dwellers of non-family households.
