The New Condominium Apartment Price Report (NCAPR) is a survey of new condominium builders in 9 census metropolitan areas across Canada. The survey is conducted monthly and collects data on prices and characteristics of new residential condominium units in apartment-style buildings.

Data collected from the NCAPR are used to calculate the New Condominium Apartment Price Index that measures changes over time in the prices of new residential condominium units in apartment-style buildings, where prices are adjusted to reflect the constant quality pricing concept over time.

The data collected closes data gaps in the measurement of new residential property price indexes and produces more accurate and representative price indexes for the new housing market.

Data collected from this survey is used to produce the new condominium apartment price index which is a component of the Residential Property Price Index.

Your information may also be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes.

    Data Sharing Agreements

    To reduce response burden, Statistics Canada has entered into data sharing agreements with provincial and territorial statistical agencies and other government organizations, which have agreed to keep the data confidential and use them for statistical purposes only. Statistics Canada will share data from this survey only with those organizations that have demonstrated a requirement to use the data.

    Section 11 of the Statistics Act provides for the sharing of information with provincial and territorial statistical agencies that meet certain conditions. These agencies must have the legislative authority to collect the same information, on a mandatory basis, and the legislation must include substantially the same provisions for confidentiality and penalties for disclosure of confidential information as the Statistics Act. Because these agencies have the legal authority to compel businesses to provide the same information, consent is not requested and businesses may not object to the sharing of the data.

    For this survey, there are Section 11 agreements with the provincial statistical agencies of Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. The data shared will be limited to information pertaining to business establishments located within the jurisdiction of the respective province.

    Record linkage

    To enhance the data from this survey and reduce response burden, Statistics Canada may combine the information you provide with data from other surveys or administrative sources.
