From sea to shining sea, there's a lot of variety when it comes to Canadian real estate.
Listings websites often feature multimillion-dollar condos in cities like Vancouver and Toronto, but what's on the luxury market elsewhere?
Whether it's a $35 million penthouse on the west coast or an entire estate in the east, here's a look at the most expensive real estate listings in major Canadian cities this week. All images and listings are from Realtor.ca.
Unsurprisingly, many of the site's most expensive listings in Canada are located in the Vancouver area.
