About the Northern Housing Report
A large proportion of housing in the North is provided through Territorial housing providers:
- Yukon Housing Corporation
- Northwest Territories Housing Corporation
- Nunavut Housing Corporation
This analysis is based on CMHC’s Northern Housing Report. It discusses housing affordability challenges that continue to persist and impact housing markets in the North.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic created volatility in employment, incomes and migration throughout the North.
The severity and duration of COVID-19 continues to pose a major risk to housing markets in the region. This report focuses on specific impacts on housing fundamentals for the North and the housing continuum.
We’ve added new features to this year’s report:
- enhanced affordability measures
- initiatives from the National Housing Strategy
