Local prices increased when compared to October of last year, Teranet found, but only slightly.
The index is up just under one per cent when compared to the same period a year ago.
Among the eleven markets Teranet measures, the index increased 0.1 per cent month-over-month in October. It’s up three per cent from the same period a year ago.
Calgary, Hamilton and Toronto had the largest price increases while prices were down in Victoria and Halifax.
