The unexpected and unprecedented changes that occurred globally in the wake of the covid-19 outbreak derailed an economic expansion that was into its tenth year here in Canada. While virtually all economic, demographic, and housing market measures swiftly and significantly diverged from trend beginning in March, prompt fiscal and monetary responses combined with a slow-but-steady re-opening plan for the economy worked to rehabilitate the labour market. Here in Metro Vancouver, the housing market has shown considerable resilience and is likely to remain active for the foreseeable future due to low-interest rates and a recovering economy.   Twice a year, rennie intelligence produces the rennie landscape, that tracks a variety of demographic and economic indicators that directly and indirectly influence our housing market here in Metro Vancouver.
