In Canada, we hear plenty of talk about how difficult it is to afford housing.
Much of that discussion concerns the cost of buying a home in a major market such as Toronto or Vancouver.
But what of rentals? How hard is it to find what you need with a median household income?
That depends entirely on where you're looking.
The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) considers a home affordable when it takes up less than 30 per cent of a household's before-tax income.
So to examine the challenges of renting in Canada, we took a household income of $60,000, which is below the median for every province. Then we looked at how tough it would be to rent a place for $1,500 per month — a round figure that accounts for approximately 30 per cent of a $60,000 annual salary.
