According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s latest market figures, the seasonally adjusted annual rate of housing starts increased to 215,600 units in March, up from 205,300 in February.
The seasonally adjusted annual rate of urban starts also increased by over four per cent in March to 192,100 units, while rural starts hit about 23,500 units.
“The upward movement in March was largely due to an increase in multiple starts, particularly in Ontario and the Prairies,” said Mathieu Laberge, the deputy chief economist that Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s market analysis centre. “This was partly offset by a decrease in multiple starts in British Columbia and Quebec, while single-detached starts decreased marginally country-wide.”
