This city was ranked 32nd out of 35 cities when it comes to what people are paying for rent across the country.

The average rent in Lethbridge for a one bedroom place in April was around $947 a month and $1,075 for two bedrooms.

One interesting statistic to note province-wide, furnished apartments in Alberta are listed 38% higher than unfurnished places, so if you have your own stuff that could save you a bundle in rent.
