Housing markets boomed across Canada in 2002 and Atlantic Canada was no exception. Yet most of the growth was concentrated in urban areas. Housing markets are expected to cool slightly in 2003 but remain at relatively high levels. Going forward, housing demand in Atlantic Canada is forecast to grow faster than the population as the aging of the residents contributes to smaller household size. Provincial housing starts will likely also continue to outstrip growth in the number of households as individuals migrate to the region’s urban centres and as older homes are replaced. This Report Card examines some of the demographic factors influencing housing demand in Atlantic Canada and reviews provincial housing markets in 2002.
