Alberta posts largest new housing spending decline

Construction falls by $135 million

Alberta homebuilders were a little more cautious in January, as new housing construction fell by $135 million in January compared to the same month last year, according to Statistics Canada.

By percentage, Alberta's 16 per cent decline placed it around the middle when compared to other provinces (spending in Saskatchewan fell by 31 per cent). Based on dollar figures, however, the provincial decline was tops in the country.

Nationally, spending on new residential building construction totalled $3.9 billion in December, up 4.8 per cent from the same month a year earlier.
According to Statistics Canada, Calgary and Edmonton posted identical population gains of 2.4 per cent between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. Illustration Statistics Canada.
