That's $750 less than Vancouver, which took the top spot at $2,130 per month and $420 less than Toronto, which was second most expensive at $1,800 per month.

It's also $540 more than the rent in St. John's, Newfoundland, which was the lowest on the list at $840 per month.

Places that are more expensive than Montreal when it comes to renting a one-bedroom include Halifax, Ottawa, Hamilton and Barrie.

The least expensive rents on the list besides St. John's are found in Edmonton, Regina and Quebec City where the median price of a one-bedroom is $900 per month.
