Commercial rental market begins to recover

November 19, 2020

With further easing of physical distancing measures, the gradual reopening of the economy, and employment continuing to recover, Statistics Canada observes that commercial rents rose by 0.7% in the third quarter, following a record 1.8% drop in the second quarter. Rents for retail buildings rose at the third-highest rate, 0.5%. The increase in commercial rents in the summer reflected gradual easing of rent relief and abatement during the second quarter as well as an improved labour market.
