Just under three in ten Canadians are worried or somewhat worried about paying for housing costs next month (29%), decreasing from the wave in November, but consistent with previous waves in 2023 and 2022. Younger Canadians aged 18 to 34 (33%) and 35 to 54 (38%) are more likely to be worried or somewhat worried than those aged 55 plus (19%).

Nanos conducted an RDD dual frame (land- and cell-lines) hybrid telephone and online random survey of 1,071 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between February 28th to March 2nd, 2024, as part of an omnibus survey. Participants were randomly recruited by telephone using live agents and administered a survey online. The results were statistically checked and weighted by age and gender using the latest Census information and the sample is geographically stratified to be representative of Canada. The margin of error for a random survey of 1,071 Canadians is ±3.0 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

The research was conducted by Nanos Research.
