Canadians Richer Than Americans


    Canadians have a higher household worth than Americans, says Environics Analytics ‘WealthScapes.’ On average, Canadian households have a net worth of $363,202, while American households have an average net worth of $319,970. The main reason we are richer is the housing crisis in the United States, says Michael Adams, president of Environics. The collapse of the American housing market led to a plunge in home prices and Canadian real estate is now much more highly valued than American real estate.
