Canadians forced to choose between house and kids

High prices in some of Canada’s housing markets are forcing younger buyers to make a tough choice between buying a home in their region and starting a family.

It’s such a big issue that across all demographics 56 per cent said that their ability to start a family had been adversely affected by the cost of housing in their region.

The RateSupermarket poll found that the figure rises to more than 72 per cent for millennials. Almost 53 per cent said that they could not start or expand their family in their current home.
