Landlord’s Self-Help Centre commissioned Vink Consulting to prepare a study on the Secondary Rental Housing Market in Ontario which was published in November 2016.

The report was prepared to develop comprehensive information about the size of the secondary rental housing market in Ontario. The report estimates the number of rental units which comprise the secondary rental market on a provincial basis and on a regional basis as of 2016. It also projects the growth, or loss, of the market over the next five and ten year periods and assesses the factors which will contribute to the growth or loss of units in the market.

The research questions addressed in this report are:

  1. How is the secondary rental housing market defined?
  2. What is the breadth of the secondary rental housing market and the type of rental units which comprise this market on a provincial basis and on a regional basis?
  3. What are the contributing factors to secondary rental market growth or loss in the next five and ten year periods and how are they anticipated to contribute to growth or loss?
  4. What is the projected secondary rental market growth, or loss, in the next five and ten year periods on a provincial basis and on a regional basis?
