Housing

I am sponsoring a refugee family, how much is the average monthly rent for an apartment in Ontario?

The cost of renting an apartment or house depends on many things such as: the size of the apartment or house, including the number of bedrooms; the community and neighborhood where it is located; and, the age and condition of the apartment or house.
