Key Points of Discussion

  • A review of the prevailing set of financial system instabilities borne out of the unprecedented interdependence between housing-related industries and the sustenance of the broader Canadian economy
  • An updated summary and analysis of the major Canadian housing finance policies and regulatory measures enacted over the last 12 months, paired with a contextualized review of regional housing data pertaining to Canada's four largest markets: Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Montreal
  • A review of emerging themes and potential catalysts, including:
    • The dampened outlook for an economy losing the thrust of its two historically dominant engines, housing and commodities, in addition to a diminished competitive position from an improved and increasingly friendly U.S. business climate
    • A deterioration in household finances under the growing weight of burdensome debt loads, reflected in slowing consumer credit growth and rising insolvencies
    • The increasing state of housing supply fueled by developer bets on enduring foreign and speculative demand in cities like Vancouver and Toronto 
    • The pro-cyclical nature of the main drivers of Canada's vaunted population growth
    • Growing alarm and public scrutiny over relaxed money laundering laws, and the enabled flow of dirty money into real estate, giving rise to an emboldened regulatory response
