Home sales in Canada hit an all-time high in 2016 so it's no wonder Canadians were particularly focused on our house tours this week. The average resale house price in Canada reached $470,861 in December, up 3.5 per cent from a year earlier, the Canadian Real Estate Association reported this month. From prefabricated homes to a gorgeous Winnepeg cottage, we hope our features are keeping your dreams of home ownership alive.
