Over the past several decades, it has always made better sense to buy a house, not rent, because it’s a great investment. But with skyrocketing debt levels creating a gigantic, terrifying housing bubble in Canada, particularly in cities like Toronto and Vancouver, renting might be the smarter move. Not in all cases, obviously, but definitely some.

Doling out that first and last month’s rent might come at a cost, but having a place that requires no maintenance and isn’t technically “yours” might better fit your lifestyle. Your next step is figuring out location, because this country has so many varying cities and towns — and some places might surprise you.

RentSeeker.ca looked at what it actually costs (their data, however, did not include New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI or the territories), and what you need to make each month to rent a two-bedroom apartment across Canada. All you need to do now is pack up your boxes.
