This Is What A $1 Million House Looks Like In 11 Major Canadian Cities

There are some big differences.

Buying a house in Canada is not exactly cheap. After all, Canadian real estate prices keep going up, and the market has remained strong over the last few years. But if you're not yet in the market it can be tricky, unless you happen to have $1 million.

What kind of property can you get by spending only a million dollars and not any more than that? It all depends on where you want to live.

Some major Canadian cities don't offer much when it comes to great places to live, even at this higher price tag.

On the other hand, cities that are not as high in demand can offer some surprisingly nice places to live for seven figures. You might just have to be willing to live somewhere you hadn't thought of before.

Aside from location, there are a number of other factors that go into the decision to buy a house. Square footage and amenities also play a role in which one is right for you. 

We took a look at what a $1 million listing in 11 major Canadian cities looks like, and the results vary wildly from province to province.
