The market took a hit in 2008, but has since started a rebound with unemployment at a record low, people are starting to spend money on housing. I will do a more research on the ROI figures and post some interesting facts shortly

Having spent the last few months working the Toronto market for leases and sales i've come to some very crazy conclusions. It seems the leasing market there is on out of control. Ive had many inquiries from prospective tenants and if you dont get the lease in sight unseen you wont have a chance at the property. There is definetly a shortage of people willing to lease to average people. The current owners are only looking at you if your credit is perfect and all other documents are spotless.
