The average renter in Brampton paid over 4 per cent more for lodging last month than they did during the same time last year.

The average price for rental units across the Greater Toronto Area have spiked in nearly every municipality or community over the last year, according to the latest Bullpen Research & Consulting and TorontoRentals.com Toronto GTA Rent Report.
