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.

Document Highlights

  • Only one city, Toronto, still has positive short- and long-term expectations this month.
  • The most occupied expectations quadrant is the postive short-term/negative long-term one, signalling that the recent strength in census metropolitan area (CMA) housing markets may wane over the next couple of years.
  • The CMAs with the biggest year-over-year percentage decrease in housing starts in September were Kingston, Windsor, Kitchener–Waterloo, Hamilton, and Halifax.
