|Title:||Housing Tenure Change in the City of Toronto From 1971 to 1988|
|Abstract:||<p> This thesis examines the change in housing tenure in the City of Toronto. The trends of tenure are described briefly between 1951 to 1971, for the city, as well as for the CMA. Specifically examined is the period from 1971 to 1988, in the City of Toronto. </p> <p> There is a continual decline in the rate of home ownership from 1951 to 1971, even though the absolute number of homeowners is increasing. This can be seen in the city, as well as the suburbs, and outlying areas. The overall decline in the rate may be due to the apartment boom of the 1960's, which can be associated with the baby boom from a few years earlier. Also suburbanization was occurring which certainly had an effect on home ownership. </p> <p> Similarly, ownership rates continued to decline between 1971 to 1986, although the absolute numbers were higher than tenants, and was steadily increasing. Gentrification and condominium construction certainly was associated with this absolute increase in home ownership. A closer look at the city reveals certain census tracts are increasing in home ownership at a higher rate than others. By looking at certain demographic characteristics, it is possible to see the changing social geography of these areas. </p> <p>The period 1986 to 1988 incurred tremendous condominium construction. The city during this time increased in ownership rates. Changing lifestyles and desires of the people living in the city caused a demand for condominiums. </p> <p> It is important to examine these trends and patterns of the city and the outlying areas to be kept informed of the changing social and economic geography of the city. </p>|
