Rental Housing Demand and Supply key summary measure

The Neglected Affordable Housing Strategy provides estimates for rental housing demand by income level. The intent of this measure is to track how that demand is being met through new supply. To meet demand, funding from other levels of government is required. The Housing Demand Estimates are not targets. These estimates are provided as reference to assist in long range planning and represent a mid‐range / average trend projection based on the existing rental households in each municipality.

  • Increase in total households over 10 years is based on regional population and household projections. Neglected total exceeds municipal aggregate totals due to municipal variance.
  • Very low income <$30,000/year, Low income <$30,000-50,000/year, Moderate income $50,000-75,000/year, Above moderate $75,000-$100,000/yr, High income $100,000/yr plus.
  • Household maintainer rates and cohort projection method using census/NHS based household maintainer rates and projected demographic, characteristics (age, births, deaths, immigration, Canadian migration, intra-regional migration).
