The NWT Community Survey continues the work of measuring and analyzing housing conditions in the Northwest Territories that has occurred for many years by examining nationally accepted indicators including suitability, adequacy and affordability. Suitability is defined as having the appropriate number of bedrooms for the characteristics and number of occupants as determined by the National Occupancy Standard requirements. Adequate housing must have running running water, an indoor toilet, bathing and washing facilities and must not require major repairs. Affordable housing costs less than 30% of household income where shelter costs include utilities, water, heat, insurance, property taxes land lease costs and rent or mortgage payments.
