Are Canada apartments better than Canada houses?
Real estate in Canada extends all the way from Calgary and British Columbia to Vancouver Island, Ontario, London, Quebec, Montreal and Mont-Tremblant. But when it comes to investing in Canadian real estate, are Canada apartments better than Canada houses?

Canada is composed of ten provinces and three territories. They extend for more than 9.9 million square kilometres, making Canada the world’s second largest country by total area, and because it shares a border with the United States, the longest land border in the world.
The land in Canada was inhabited for thousands of years by various groups of indigenous peoples. Since the late 15th century, British and French expeditions explored and later settled along the Atlantic coast. France ceded nearly all its colonies in North America in 1763 after the Seven Years War. In 1867, the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation meant Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This started a collection of the provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom. This independence has been marked by the expansion of the Statute of Westminster of 1931 and ended in Canada in 1982, which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on British Parliament.
Canada has a strong democratic tradition supported by a parliamentary system in the construction of the constitutional monarchy. The monarchy of Canada is the foundation of the executive, legislative and judicial (the sovereign is Queen Elizabeth II, who is also head of state from other 15 countries of the Commonwealth). As such, the Queen’s representative, Governor General of Canada (now David Lloyd Johnston) makes most of the Royal Canadian federal functions.
Federal Government of Canada’s share of responsibilities is divided between the federal government and the ten provinces. Provincial legislatures are unicameral and parliamentary work in a similar way to the House of Commons. Canada also has three area legislators, but these are not sovereign, and have fewer constitutional responsibilities to the provinces, and some structural differences.
