  • The stock of single-family dwellings declined in 20 of 25 municipalities in BC’s Lower Mainland
  • The region’s seniors population is inexorably expanding, but kids still outnumber retirees
  • The young family formation / housing market entry age group of 20-39 year olds grew throughout the Lower Mainland, including in the City of Vancouver
