The Canadian Housing Survey is a new survey conducted by Statistics Canada, in partnership with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). It will occur every two years, until 2028. The survey will collect new information on:

  • dwelling and neighbourhood satisfaction,
  • first-time homebuyers,
  • indicators relating to moving, and
  • housing affordability, as well as
  • many other important dwelling and household characteristics.

The survey will help identity trends and gaps in the Canadian housing ecosystem.

Preliminary results are now available. More results and products will be released from January 2020 through to Summer 2020.
