Report: Manitoba building permits down in July
from Winnipeg Free Press
Manitoba posted one of the biggest monthly declines in building permit activity in the country in July, new Statistics Canada data shows. Municipalities in the province issued $238.1 million worth of residential and non-residential permits during the month, the agency said recently. That was a drop of 26.4 per cent from June's total of $323.4 million. Among the provinces, only Saskatchewan saw a bigger decline, at 27.1 per cent. Canada, meanwhile, saw its permit values decline by only 3.5 per cent, to $7.9 billion.
