The 54 plants are operated by a wide variety of industries. Plants run by these industries tend to be fairly small (the largest is 38 000 kilowatts). They also tend to be found in cities. By type, these plants are a mix of hydro and thermal stations.

This map shows the 630 generating stations operated by utilities, with the stations being classed by their capacity (in kilowatts). They have an enormous size range: many are under 10 000 kilowatts, whereas a small number exceed 1 000 000 kilowatts in size.

This map shows the 815 generating stations with a capacity of 500 kilowatts or greater classed by the principal fuel used. Two fuels are dominant: water power (hydro-electricity) and petroleum products. The pattern of hydro plants across Canada is partly explained by Canada's geology: areas that are either rugged or mountainous should have more good sites for these plants than do flat-lying areas. The geology map of Canada has been added here confirms this: it shows that the Canadian Shield (rugged) and Orogen areas (mountainous areas) do have many more hydro stations than do platforms (flat-lying areas).

According to the 2006 Census, 68.4% of households owned their home in 2006, up from 65.8% in 2001. The increase in condominium owners between 2001 and 2006 accounted for more than one-quarter of the increase in the number of Canadian households that own their dwelling. The term owned dwelling refers only to owner-occupied private dwellings, which do not include dwellings situated on farms, but can include owner-occupied dwellings situated on rented or leased land or part of a condominium. At the same time, the proportion of Canadian households that rented their home declined, from 33.8% in 2001 to 31.2% in 2006.
