TABE Webinar: Canada’s Housing Market Downturn: Will it Restore Affordability?

The Bank of Canada’s rate liftoff in March marked the end of an exceptional period for our housing market during which activity and prices reached stratospheric levels. The correction since then was not—or should not have been—a surprise. What is less clear is how much of the pandemic trends will be reversed. Of particular importance for buyers is whether ownership costs will get more affordable. Robert will provide his outlook for the market and draw implications for affordability over the next phase of the cycle.


Organized by Paul Ferley
