Building permits, April 2014

Following two consecutive monthly declines, the total value of building permits issued by Canadian municipalities rose 1.1% to $6.0 billion in April. This increase resulted from higher construction intentions in the residential sector, which more than offset the decline in the non-residential sector.

The value of permits was up in six provinces, led by Quebec, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
