Charlottetown

Personality in a small package: Living in Charlottetown

 

With its vibrant seaside charm and the appeal of living in a city that’s truly at the heart of Canadian history, Charlottetown continues to fascinate tourists, residents and new tenants.

 

If you’re moving to Charlottetown, the “Birthplace of Confederation” and the capital city of Prince Edward Island, you’ll discover a distinctive and welcoming island in what is Canada’s smallest and least populated province. With a small population of less than 35,000 residents (about 140,000 throughout the whole province), Charlottetown offers a traditional flavour and a relaxing way of life. It won’t be long before new tenants will feel like true “Islanders”.

 

Although PEI has traditionally relied on industries like agriculture, tourism and fishing and has been heavily invested in its Provincial Nominee Program to attract newcomers, the unemployment rate of the province is one of the highest in Canada. Despite this, however, it’s quite easy to understand the appeal of this charming island province and particularly the very walkable and safe city. Renting in Charlottetown means you can take advantage of a lower cost of living than in many other provinces, as well as learning to be active and relaxed at the same time.

    Costs of living

     

    PEI is good at protecting its heritage, as well as its low cost of living. The province, through a commission, is responsible for regulating fair rates for rental, utilities, insurance, and even gasoline.

     

    Housing costs are among the lowers in Canada, with an average price of $700 for renting a one-bedroom apartment in the city centre.

     

    The Residential Rental Property Regulation website provides information on, for example, allowable rent increases, rate of interest on security deposits and much more. For 2014, the allowable rent increase is 2% for heated rental accommodation and 1% for unheated rental accommodation.

     

    As a new renter in Charlottetown, you’ll have to set up your electricity connection with Maritime Electric, and budget for deposits and new connection charges. Heating is often included in the rent in PEI, as is hot water.

     

    Electricity, however, will probably be left up to you. You may also have to pay for snow removal or do it yourself if it’s not included in your rent – it's something you can try to negotiate with the landlord.
