Canadian home resale prices fell for a fifth straight month in January, the longest string of declines since the country’s 2009 recession, according to the Teranet-National Bank Composite House Price Index.
National prices fell 0.3 percent during the month, according to a report today by National Bank Financial. Prices were up 2.7 percent from a year earlier, the slowest pace since November 2009.
The index tracks prices in 11 major cities.
