The cost of renting an apartment or house depends on the size (number of bedrooms), the community and neighbourhood where it is located, and the age and condition of the apartment or house.
Prices vary from city to city and from year to year. Generally, smaller cities have lower rental costs than larger cities.
You can find information about average rent prices in past years in CHMC Rental Market Reports. For local rental market information, please contact your local CMHC branch. You can also look in the classified ads in your local newspaper or check online housing listings. You can also call a housing help centre or community agency about rental pricing and trends. To find help in your area, go to Services Near Me.
