The National Bank of Canada's new report on home affordability shows that the costs of owning a home rose in 9 out of 10 major cities that were surveyed for the report. Continuing the current three-year downward streak that house affordability has maintained in Canada. The only place that showed minor improvement was Winnipeg.

The report itself not only showed that homes are getting more expensive but also showed just how much you need to bring in salary wise to be able to afford a detached home in certain cities across Canada. The top ten list from lowest to highest includes some cities that we assumed would make it, but there definitely are some random ones that surprised us. To check and see where your salary can afford a detached home fit for a single family in Canada, just keep scrolling!

Of course, Toronto and Vancouver topped the list which probably doesn't come as a surprise to many. Though Hamilton's placing as the fourth most expensive market as well as Calgary coming in fifth place definitely is a shocking reality. Clearly, if you are looking for a bargain on a detached home for a single family, the best place to check out would be Quebec City considering you'll only need an income in and around $51,000 to afford it!
