Despite having collectively endured much tumult and change over the past 2 years, Metro Vancouver is decidedly in a much better place today than in those early months of 2020. And though clouds of uncertainty have recently accumulated—brought about by war in Europe, generationally-high inflation, and rising interest rates—we note that our labour market is strong, employers (generally) feel positive about business conditions and are looking to hire, and our province is poised for record population growth this year and beyond.

The current edition of the rennie landscape explores many of these topics and more. We hope that you not only find it useful in your practice, but enjoy reading it, too.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.
