And naturally, because they have so many listing and clients, they've got a pretty good idea about where the apartments tend to cost the most money.

It might interest you to know that rent in Canada's most expensive cities has actually been falling. That's right, it's actually less expensive to live in one of the top five priciest cities in Canada.

According to PadMapper analysis of March prices, the rent increased in 12 cities, decreased in 8, and stayed the same in 6. So, I guess overall rent is still going up (boooo).

Vancouver, British Colombia just outranked Toronto with an average of $2,000 for a one-bedroom and is now the most expensive place to live in Canada, while Windsor, Ontario is the cheapest with a $710 average for a one-bedroom.
