The Housing Supply Deficit - Not Enough Homes for Families with Young Children

2017 Performance and TrendsCHBA Performance and Trends Special Report

This research report points to a significant and growing mismatch between housing demand and what the residential construction industry is able to supply given today’s planning and zoning patterns and lack of available serviced land.  In fact, the report notes that if the current trends continue, Canada will see a shortfall of some 300,000 family-oriented homes over the next decade.
