The graphic, which measures the percentage of growth in house prices every quarter between 2000 and 2020, compares Canada with the U.K. and the U.S., as well as several European countries.

In the early 2000s, Canada’s house prices remained pretty consistent. However, things took a turn in 2011 and 2012 as Canada became the country where housing prices had rise the most.
