Explore the Impacts of Canadian Inflation on Rent Prices

When we talk about inflation, most data points refer to the broad CPI index, which includes a variety of consumer costs such as food, energy, transportation, etc. But one specific stat tracked by Statistics Canada is “Rent Accommodation”, which has its own rate of inflation separate from other categories. We’ve built that data into our Canada Rent Inflation Calculator. To use it, simply put in a value representing what rent might cost today, and select a historical year to compare it to. Below the calculator we have included average rental rates for Canadian provinces.

We've included the Canadian average as a default (from Rentals.ca), but you can change it to any value you want to compare.
