The national composite index is the weighted average of these 11 Canadian metropolitan areas. These Canada indices are based on the repeat sales methodology and began in February 1999.

Their dwelling price data is available from 1981 but is not free.

Quarterly Change in house prices
|% change over a quarter (QoQ)|
This table shows the change in house prices during a single quarter.
The figures are not adjusted for inflation, so may overstate house price rises (or understate declines).
Four quarter's house price changes may NOT sum to the annual (year-on-year) change in house prices, for statistical reasons.
