Canada’s housing sector sees big gains in February

Ontario sees a 30 percent increase in homes built

by

Canada’s housing sector saw significant gains last month, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Builders broke ground on 182,000 new homes in February, a 7 percent increase from January. Ontario alone saw a 30 per cent increase, with 62,600 housing starts last month. The CMHC attributes the growth in Ontario to a mild rise in house prices and a rise in demand for new multi-family dwellings.
