In June 2021 average single family detached prices turned back down into the price channel that has defined prices in the last 9 years of sideways chop.
Meanwhile Townhouse prices caught another bid in a year long rally. Condo asking prices were rejected this month and are now down to 15 years ago at 1Q 2006 levels when the TSX Energy Index was trading at 2.5 times higher.
Total residential sales have turned down from last month's high and inventory continues to increase bringing the ratio of listings to sales up to 2.4.

The employed in Alberta enjoy the highest average employment earnings on the latest April 2021 data (2 month lag) at $63,605/yr which includes the government shutdown subsidies and are still 8% above Canada's national average.
But in Canada, only 20% of households have a net worth greater than $1,000,000 (see my post "Household Net Worth" of June 2020).
Foreign Direct Investment in Canada has been negative for over two decades and the data plot spread has been widening since 2015. That's a trend. Housing is a commodity as is heavy Alberta crude. Follow the money, see the TSX chart and my notes on the commodities super cycle in my post Japan Redux and my December 6, 2020 post Peak Oil Says BP.
