The New Condominium Apartment Price Index (NCAPI) is a survey of new condominium builders in nine census metropolitan areas across Canada. This monthly survey collects data on prices and characteristics of new residential condominium units in apartment-style buildings.
Data are used to calculate the New Condominium Apartment Price Index (NCAPI), which measures changes over time in the prices of new residential condominium units in apartment-style buildings. Prices are adjusted to take into account the concept of constant quality over time.
The NCAPI closes data gaps in the measurement of new residential property price indexes and, along with the New Housing Price Index, paints a more accurate and representative picture of the new housing market.
The NCAPI is also used for the new condominium apartment 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.
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.
