Even with the large increase in the price of one bedroom units over the past 12 months, Kelowna remains the cheapest of the four B.C. cities sitting in the top 10.

After being taken over by Toronto, Vancouver is currently the second most expensive city for renters in Canada, with Burnaby sitting third and Victoria not far behind in sixth place.

Abbotsford, where the average price of a one bedroom unit is $900, sits at 20th and is the only other city in B.C. to make the list.
