    This chapter examines two case examples of housing issues in remote cities. The case of Palmerston in Australia’s Northern Territory concentrates on the nature of housing tenure and the extent to which changes in housing stock and population characteristics have exacerbated housing stress. The case of Kelowna in British Columbia reports more qualitatively on the experiences of a group of new immigrants to the city. Immigration is a key issue for the development and economic prosperity of remote cities of Australia and Canada. The chapter explores a relatively new field of demographic study, and housing in remote cities. It draws on other associated research, secondary and primary data, and identifies some of the key factors that distinguish the differences between the housing-population relationship in remote contexts from metropolitan cities, where most of the populations of Australia and Canada reside.
