This publication gives you up-to-date statistics on housing starts in Canada, and is currently issued by CMHC on the sixth working day of every month.
This report represents the previous month's activity, the tables are organized according to a number of characteristics: by region, province, Census Metropolitan Area, and dwelling type. Statistics are organized to facilitate an analysis of monthly, quarterly and year over year changes, and raw and seasonally-adjusted data is presented separately. Selected market absorption data is also included.
Housing starts data is also available through our Housing Market Information Portal. The portal is updated at the same time as this publication release. The Housing Market Information Portal offers housing starts and other housing market information at a more detailed geographic level.
Note: starting in November 2020, CMHC will be moving the release of monthly housing starts data to the eleventh business day. This will allow for a single release of finalized housing market data.
