Student Housing in Canada: Where we are and what comes next?
Watch an invaluable discussion about critical questions surrounding Canada's student housing shortage and investment opportunities.
In 2022, Canada continued the trend of the last few years by welcoming over 1 million new residents. This influx has led to an unprecedented housing shortage, putting immense pressure on both local and national government bodies while also creating opportunities for new investors.
This housing shortage is especially pronounced in the international education sector, as the projected growth in international student numbers is set to increase the already substantial supply gap in purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) in Canada’s major student cities.
Leading experts within the international education sector express growing concern that, without a rapid acceleration in supply, the scarcity of student accommodation could undermine Canada’s standing as a desirable destination for international students.
