  • CMHC Survey - the price that existing tenants are paying for two bedroom apartments in Toronto (rentals in apartment buildings)

CMHC Survey

CMHC produces an annual survey of landlords and their October 2019 survey produced the following results for two bedroom apartments in the city of Toronto. Keep in mind, these rental rates do not include condo rentals (which would be higher than typical apartment prices). Also worth noting, these rates may be lower than you see advertised as they include what people are currently paying for their apartment - which is different than what the apartment would rent for when it becomes available. As expected, the closer you would like to live to downtown Toronto, the more you will pay.

On average, across the entire city of Toronto, those sharing a two bedroom apartment pay around $795 each per month - with downtown being around $1200 each per month.
