“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.”
