An introduction to the Canadian Housing Statistics Program
February 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
The Canadian Housing Statistics Program (CHSP) was created in 2017 in response to the federal government’s desire to create an integrated and comprehensive source of information on housing. Drawing on a wide array of administrative data, the CHSP has produced an evolving picture of the housing markets in five provinces and three territories, with the remaining provinces scheduled to be completed soon. This presentation documents the nature of the program and some of its central findings, with a focus on the British Columbia housing market. From non-resident ownership to first-time homebuyer statistics, the presentation will explain how researchers can use this data in their own work. In addition, it will outline possible employment opportunities with the program.
