The Great Canadian Road Trip – Where We’ve Been, and Where We’re Headed


As the CREA RV currently rests at a pit-stop somewhere in Canada, we’re taking a look back at the first few destinations on the Great Canadian Road Trip. We set out on the first leg of our journey in June, stopping in Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, then moving on to Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia, and finishing with New Brunswick and Alberta. With so much ground covered, we learned a lot about real estate market nuances in each location. Our team of travelers heard about many factors influencing buyers both locally and from outside the provinces, and the impact re-opening international borders will have on the coming year.

We spoke with real estate experts in each location to learn about the unique possibilities each province has to offer and what, if any, impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on business. We explored the benefits of living, owning businesses, and buying income properties in each destination, and what your dollar can afford to purchase in many desirable – urban and rural – regions across the country. Each of our gracious guides helped us explore the geography unique to each province and how that influences daily life, whether it be the type of industries prevalent or tourism opportunities. We also compared Canada’s real estate market trends to those of each province and looked at similarities and differences between provinces in each region, to see where they stack up.

Which provinces are most affordable, and which offer the type of investment or lifestyle your clients are looking for? You’ll have to watch to find out and register to join us on the next leg of this cross-country tour starting in September to get the story on Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, and the territories.
