In recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8th, CUR dug into Statistics Canada’s data to look at differences between females and males in real estate in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) and Ontario.
Here are our top 4 findings:
1. There are more female than male residential property owners in the Toronto CMA
- There are roughly 130,000 more female than male owners of residential properties in the Toronto CMA (see Figure 1);
- 36% of the female population are homeowners, while 33% of the male population are homeowners; and
- The higher ownership rate among females likely reflects the fact that there are more widowed females than males.
