Paper on Muslim Homeownership Patterns in Atlantic Canada by Maryam Dilmaghani

Muslim Homeownership Patterns in Atlantic Canada - Dilmaghani

Using the Canadian National Household Survey of 2011, this paper examines the homeownership patterns of Muslims in Atlantic Canada. Three outcomes of homeownership, value of the dwelling, and the likelihood of carrying a mortgage are considered. Muslims are found less likely to own their dwelling, compared with similarly situated non-Muslims. But, conditional on owning, neither the value of their dwelling nor their likelihood of carrying a mortgage differs from non-Muslim residents of Atlantic Canada.
