Total government debt nearly doubled from C $1.3 trillion (US $1 trillion) in 2010 to more than C $25000 billion in 2020, of which the Canadian government increased its debt by 400 billion in 2020 alone.

Home mortgages account for the vast majority of debt growth, with the overall Canadian house price index soaring from 80 in 2008-2020 to 120, an increase of 50 per cent, with house prices in Vancouver rising 36.4 per cent from June 2015 to June 2016, the highest in the world.
With house prices skyrocketing, the housing affordability index in Vancouver and Toronto has risen rapidly, of which the housing burden ratio in Vancouver requires a family not to eat or drink for more than 12 years before they can afford it. Home mortgage debt accounts for 70% of household debt, and the ratio of debt to disposable income is even more eye-popping-as high as 242% and 208%, respectively.

By 2020, the leverage ratio of residents has exceeded 100%.
