Wendy Waters is back for her third appearance on the podcast. The discussion revolves around Canadian demographics and the impact that has on real estate. Of particular interest is the large number of new Canadians in their 20s and 30s.

Wendy, Aaron, and Adam also have an in-depth conversation about co-working office space. We hear about some of its advantages and disadvantages, its presence in Canada, and why we are seeing more and more of these spaces.

  • Why we have to increase housing supply.
