Calgary & Edmonton are among the many least expensive cities in North America

It’s pretty good here in Alberta. From the mountains and nightlife, to our world-class restaurants and decent housing market, Calgary and Edmonton are cities to beat, but it’s definitely nice to see on paper!

This week, YYC and YEG were named North America’s Cheapest Cities in an annual report published by Oxford Economics, with Calgary ranked 9th and Edmonton 4th.

On the other side of the coin? Where else but Vancouver, British Columbia – which was named the least affordable North American city ahead of Boise, Idaho, Toronto, Portland, Oregon and Hamilton.

In addition to the top and bottom 10, the report also concludes that Canada’s housing market will unfortunately deteriorate in the coming year – although demand will remain quite high.

Other key takeaways from the report? Canada is actually far less affordable than the United States because of mortgage rates – so do what you want but remember that only one of us has health coverage.

Curious what the rest of the list looks like? Here were the other places that made the cheapest and least affordable cities in North America.
