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 census metropolitan areas (CMAs) with positive short- and long-term expectations. That's two more than last month.
- Negative expectations still prevail for the long term.
- The CMAs with the biggest year-over-year percentage decreases in housing starts in July were Abbotsford–Mission, Windsor, Kitchener–Waterloo, Edmonton, and Greater Sudbury.
- Saskatoon had the biggest year-over-year percentage increase in housing starts last month.
