Part 2: The best places to invest over the past year

Investors who purchased a year ago in these markets have enjoyed impressive appreciation gains.

In this second part of a two-part series, we look at markets east of Saskatchewan that have offered the best bang for investors’ buck.

Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan has been hard-hit over the past 12 months, due, in no small part, to a struggling oil and gas industry. Overall, its market saw a 1.9% price depreciation year-over-year in April, with Thompson taking the largest hit (-19.9%).

Investors in Winnipeg faired a little better, with prices dropping 1.1% year-over-year.
