Ps on a side note where do you think the most construction was in Canada in 2020? Montreal? Toronto? Vancouver? If you said Toronto you are correct. I have listed the three cities below:
(if the last one doesn’t make sense to you, they had a lot started in 2018 that spilled into and were finished in 2019)
On another side note, where I went to High School, Hamilton, was 5th on the list with 2,360 new builds completed in 2020. Go Ti Cats! ??
With the second wave in full swing some wonder if peoples mortgage deferrals are up but they’re actually down!! CMHC announced only having 5% of their clients currently on deferred payments whereas the end of September they had over 8% pushing off payments. Alberta has the highest in Canada with over 10% of their borrowers in deferral. Also randomly Ottawa announced a one billion dollar rapid housing initiative. Basically meaning, not just for Ottawa but all of Canada between now and 2022 they will be using that money to build 3,000 affordable residences. Also on another positive note 76% of those who lost their job in the first two months of the pandemic are back to work.
Alright that’s it for me. Thank you for reading.
