Posthaste: Canada's housing market headed for 'historic correction,' says RBC

• Yahoo Finance

Soaring inflation has put the Bank of Canada on a course of aggressive hikes that will take its policy rate to restrictive levels by the fall, wrote RBC assistant chief economist Robert Hogue in the report that came out Friday.

"This will send more buyers to the sidelines, especially in British Columbia and Ontario where affordability is extremely stretched," he said.

RBC now expects home sales to fall nearly 23% this year and 15% next year, and national benchmark prices to drop more than 12% from peak to trough by the second quarter of 2023.
