The latest apartment rental report released by rentseeker.ca indicates that Calgary remains the most expensive city to rent a one bedroom in Canada. This despite rising vacancy rates and Alberta being in the middle of a recession.

When compared to other major cities, the clear winner were the renters in the province of Quebec. Both Montreal and Quebec City had average rents in the mid-$600s.

Here’s how Calgary rental rates compare to the rest of Canada

  1. Calgary: $1,122 average rent for 1 bedroom
  2. Toronto: $1,103 average rent for 1 bedroom
  3. Vancouver: $1,079 average rent for a 1 bedroom
