According to Royal LePage, it identified the most affordable Canadian cities “based on the percentage of income required to service a monthly mortgage payment, using provincial median total household income data and city-level aggregate home price data.”

The number one most affordable city is in northern Ontario, Thunder Bay, where 22.2 percent of a household’s monthly income would be required to service a mortgage payment.

The one other Ontario city on the most affordable Canadian cities list sits at number 13, Windsor-Essex.

Royal LePage adds, “Saint John, Red Deer, Trois-Rivières and Edmonton round out the top five, where between 25.1 and 28.9 percent of a household’s monthly income is needed to service a mortgage payment.”

“Many aspiring homeowners in the country’s largest and priciest urban centres are seriously considering relocating to less expensive cities in order to get a foot on the property ladder,” says Karen Yolevski, COO, Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd.
