According to Stéphane Gauvin, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Recovery & Reorganization Partner, this situation is due to the high unemployment rate in the region and lower disposable income per resident. He goes on to stress the importance of anticipating all of the expenses involved in purchasing a home and, of seeking advice immediately in the case of financial difficulties.
