Furthermore, in the case of Canada, the housing finance system and its political economy have a significant influence on household decision-making. This session will provide a basis for understanding Canada’s housing system and how it impacts land use. An overview of Canada’s housing system will be provided. In particular, housing policy will be understood through the lens of micro-simulation.
