On Canada’s Growing Housing Economy


A terrific article was posted on the Huffington Post on July 31st by Daniel Tencer which explores the emerging dominance of the Canadian housing industry as an employer.

As unemployment continues to plague other nations worldwide, perhaps those of us in the housing industry should be exploring alternatives should our marketplace transition.
