OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Finance Minister Joe Oliver on Tuesday told Parliament that there was no housing bubble and added that he continued to monitor the market very closely.

The government and the Bank of Canada have repeatedly predicted a soft landing for a housing market which boomed in the wake of the financial crisis, spurred by record low borrowing costs.
