Changing Patterns in Canadian Homeownership and Shelter Costs, 2006 Census: Housing tenure

This section looks at households in private occupied dwellings, referred to below simply as 'households.' There is a one-to-one relationship between private occupied dwellings and households. Households are defined as a person or a group of persons (other than foreign residents) who occupy the same dwelling and do not have a usual place of residence elsewhere in Canada. Those living in collective dwellings, such as rooming houses, seniors' residences, nursing homes or jails, are not included. In 2006, there were 12, 437, 470  households in Canada.
