Canada: Value of institutional permits push up in September

"Building permits rose in September for the first time in three months, as strength in the non-residential sector outweighed some weakness in the residential sector," the Statistics Canada announced on Wednesday.

Key highlights

Canadian municipalities issued $7.9 billion worth of building permits in September, up 3.8% from the previous month.

A 1.7% decrease in the residential sector was more than offset by a 13.9% increase in the non-residential sector.

A high-value institutional building permit issued in Alberta was behind much of the increase.

The value of residential building permits edged down $82.7 million (-1.7%) to $4.8 billion in September, the third consecutive monthly decline. 

Canada Building Permits (MoM) came in at 3.8%, above expectations (-0.2%) in September
