"New seniors' housing continues to attract new residents in Ontario. More seniors, especially couples, opted for the newer and larger spaces with a higher level of amenities," said Penny Wu, CMHC's Senior Market Analyst. "A moderation of growth in new supply also helped bring down the vacancy rate," added Wu.
