Supply and Equity
Rental licensing is the gold standard that would collect nearly complete data on market rentals. Few municipalities have rental licensing programs and those that do don’t collect data on price.
CECH met with stakeholders who demonstrated an interest in exploring rental housing licensing: Waterloo ON, Hamilton ON, Halifax NS, Victoria BC and Cornwall ON and the PEI provincial government. Based on these consultations, CHEC identified a need for an evidence-based licensing framework that is standardized, easy to implement and affordable.
