Getting Started

Purpose

The New Housing Price Index (NHPI) is a monthly series that measures changes over time in the contractors' selling prices of new residential houses, where detailed specifications pertaining to each house remain the same between two consecutive periods.

The NHPI covers the new housing part of the Residential Property Price Index (RPPI).

Authority

This information is collected under the authority of the Statistics Act, Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, Chapter S-19

Purpose

The New Housing Price Report (NHPR) is a survey of new homebuilders in 27 census metropolitan areas across Canada. The survey is conducted monthly and measures changes in the prices of new single homes, semi-detached homes and townhomes over time.

Data collected from the NHPR are used to calculate the New Housing Price Index, an important input into the shelter component of the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI is widely used as an indicator of the rate of inflation. It is also used to adjust contracted payments, such as wages and pensions, and to set and monitor economic policy.

Your information may also be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes.

You are legally required to complete this questionnaire according to the Statistics Act.

Confidentiality

Statistics Canada is prohibited by law from releasing any information it collects which could identify any person, business, or organization, unless consent has been given by the respondent or as permitted by the Statistics Act. Statistics Canada will use the information from this survey for statistical purposes.

Data-sharing agreements

To reduce respondent burden, Statistics Canada has entered into data-sharing agreements with provincial and territorial statistical agencies and other government organizations, which have agreed to keep the data confidential and use them only for statistical purposes. Statistics Canada will only share data from this survey with those organizations that have demonstrated a requirement to use the data.

Section 11 of the Statistics Act provides for the sharing of information with provincial and territorial statistical agencies that meet certain conditions. These agencies must have the legislative authority to collect the same information, on a mandatory basis, and the legislation must provide substantially the same provisions for confidentiality and penalties for disclosure of confidential information as the Statistics Act. Because these agencies have the legal authority to compel businesses to provide the same information, consent is not requested and businesses may not object to the sharing of the data.

For this survey, there are Section 11 agreements with the provincial statistical agencies of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. The shared data will be limited to information pertaining to business establishments located within the jurisdiction of the respective province.

Section 12 of the Statistics Act provides for the sharing of information with federal, provincial or territorial government organizations. For this survey, there is a Section 12 agreement with the statistical agency of Prince Edward Island. Under Section 12, you may refuse to share your information with this organization by writing a letter of objection to the Chief Statistician, specifying the name of the survey and the organization with which you do not want Statistics Canada to share your data, and mailing it to the following address:

Chief Statistician of Canada
Statistics Canada
Care of Director, Producer Prices Division
150 Tunney's Pasture Driveway
Ottawa, ON
K1A 0T6

For agreements with provincial government organizations, the shared data will be limited to information pertaining to business establishments located within the jurisdiction of the respective province.
