The Study on Housing for Young Canadians

Housing research typically focuses on homeowners. But most young people aren’t homeowners. So, when it comes to information on the housing situation for young people in Canada, we’re flying blind.

We’ve been missing an opportunity to hear about all aspects of youth housing—from time spent living at home and housing costs to the impact of housing stresses on young people’s professional lives and mental wellbeing.

 

The housing crisis significantly affects 5.5 million Canadians aged 18 to 29.

To address this data gap, Youthful Cities has launched the Study on Housing for Young Canadians. It brings youth into the conversation on housing in Canada’s 15 most populated cities. 

This study will provide a more complete data set on youth housing to inform local and national policy development and housing programs.

 

Knowledge is power: It’s time to hear from young Canadians.
