  Billionaire got Canadian citizenship after renting a Montreal basement Among the most curious revelations contained in the Paradise Papers is the question of Wafic Said’s Canadian citizenship, and how he obtained it, given his tenuous ties to this country. Said, a Syrian-born, Monaco-based billionaire, was the broker of the 1985 Al-Yamamah arms deal to sell British warplanes to Saudi Arabia, in which £6 billion in “corrupt commissions” were allegedly paid to members of the Saudi royal family. The longtime friend of Brian Mulroney also donated $4 million to the soon-to-open Brian Mulroney Institute of Government at St. Francis Xavier University, where he received an honorary degree in 2015 and was announced as a Canadian citizen.

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said in its annual report Tuesday that rents increased by twice the inflation rate this year, as booming demand for rental units pushed up prices, despite more of them being built.

Some of the highest rent increases were in British Columbia, where average rents in large urban centres such as Kelowna, Victoria and Vancouver increase by 8.6, 8.1 and 6.2 per cent, respectively.

Ontario rents also increased, mainly in and around the Toronto area.

Centres in Ontario with strong rent increases included Belleville (5.9 per cent), Oshawa (5.2 per cent), Hamilton (5.1 per cent), Barrie (4.6 per cent) and Toronto (4.2 per cent).

In Saskatoon and Edmonton, the average rent on a two-bedroom apartment declined by 1.3 per cent this year. In Calgary, average rents decreased by one per cent.

In dollar terms across the country, Vancouver is the most expensive rental market in Canada, with the average price for a two-bedroom going for $1,552. Toronto is next highest at $1,404 and Calgary at $1,247.
