Metropolitan Housing Starts: September 2022
The Conference Board of Canada
September 29, 2022
The monthly Metropolitan Housing Starts publication provides the recent trends in housing starts for 29 metropolitan areas and expectations for starts over both the short and long term.
- There are six CMAs in the Up-Up quadrant this month, two fewer than last month.
- Positive expectations still outweigh negative expectations for the short term—but the opposite is true for the long term.
- The CMAs with the biggest year-over-year percentage decrease in housing starts in August were Hamilton, London, Montréal, Victoria, and Sherbrooke.
- Greater Sudbury had the largest year-over-year percentage increase in starts in the latest month of data.
