CMHC releases Canadian Housing Observer 2010

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation(CMHC) released its flagship annual report on Thursday and while I have not yet had time to read it, I wanted to get it posted here in case you’d like to give it a go.

This is not your typical CMHC report. Rather, it’s an extensive review of the “state of Canadian housing” that goes well beyond a basic market update. In fact, the market update component is relatively small and looks back to 2009. Certainly, you’ve “been there, done that.” What you’ll find in this year’s Housing Observeris a pretty exhaustive presentation on the following seven topics that I pulled from the table of contents of the report.

Housing and the Economy
Housing Finance
Current Market Developments (if you can call 2009 current)
Demographic and Socio-economic Influences on Housing Demand
Recent Trends in Housing Affordability and Core Housing Need
An Exploration of Alternative Measures of Housing Need
The Equilibrium Initiatives
