Canada: Currency +/- valuation index

This is a cost of living indicator. The figure shows how much how much a bundle of goods and services costing US$1 in the US would cost in other countries (similar to The Economist's Big Mac Index).

To arrive at the figure, the Global Property Guide takes the difference between the IMF's nominal GDP figures, and their purchasing power parity GDP figures for the latest year available.

Note that currency undervaluation (as measured by PPP) is not a good predictor of future currency movements.

These cost of living indicators refer to data collected annually (for date of collection, see Data FAQ )

Source: calculated using figures from the IMF World Economic Outlook Database

 

Canada has some of the best housing data in the world. National Bank releases a monthly house price index composite of 11 cities. The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has statistics on house prices, housing construction activities and rent. CMHC's Housing Market Outlook and Rental Reports summarize this data. The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) produces forecasts of house sales activities and has statistics on median house prices (MLS). Scotia Bank reviews current developments in the real estate market.

General economics statistics are available from the Reserve Bank of Canada. There are also weekly updates of economic trends from the Bank of Scotia.
