Canada: House price growth eases in August, but remains upbeat

According to the Teranet-National Bank Composite House Price Index, house price growth fell to 1.0% on a month-on-month non-seasonally-adjusted basis in August, from July’s 2.0%. In annual terms, house prices were up 18.4% in August—the fastest pace on record—and accelerating from the previous month’s 17.8% rise.

In August, prices in all 11 markets surveyed increased over the month prior for the fifth month running.
