The Daily — Canadian Housing Statistics Program, 2018
Today, Statistics Canada is releasing new CHSP data on the number and characteristics of residential property owners in British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia in 2018. Demographic information on individual resident owners is also available, including age, sex, and immigration status.

A new indicator on property use is now available. This indicator provides information on whether the property is the usual residence of the owner. When the property is classified as "not owner occupied," it may be rented out or used as a secondary property by its owners, such as a pied-à-terre or a cottage, or it may be vacant. This topic will be the subject of further analysis in future releases.

Not-owner-occupied property skyrockets in Vancouver | Vancouver Sun
The federal study presented the numbers in more of a positive light, noting that “over half (54.3 per cent) of … condos … were owner-occupied, compared with 81 per cent of single-detached houses.”

But Simon Fraser University’s Andy Yan flipped the numbers around to show how the not-owner occupied numbers have skyrocketed during Vancouver’s housing crisis. Yan said in 2009 that a City of Vancouver study found 35.2 per cent of condos in the city were not-owner occupied. The new study found the number grew to 46 per cent in 2018, an increase of 10.8 per cent in a decade.

In Metro Vancouver, 37 per cent of condos are not-owner occupied. The number drops to 15 per cent for single-detached houses, but the number of not-owner occupied houses is still substantial in Bowen Island (35 per cent), White Rock (29 per cent), Lions Bay (29 per cent), Belcarra (25 per cent) and West Vancouver (23 per cent).

"And then, of course, there is the fact that even as old-fashioned biological explanations of racial hierarchy fell out of fashion, white homeowners continued to pass and uphold racist housing policies, by shifting their rationale to property values, as David Freund showed in his book Colored Property. “Federal policy promoted restrictive zoning and created a flush new market for housing that required racial segregation, yet encouraged whites to believe that it was the free market, not racial prejudice or government policy, that set the rules of competition,” Freund wrote: “that the exclusion of minorities was not about race per se but about the principles of real estate economics and homeowners’ rights to control their communities.”"
