January 2011 Housing Starts

OTTAWA - The seasonally adjusted annual rate of housing starts was 170,400 units in January, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. This is up from 169,000 units in December 2010. According to final figures, actual housing starts for 2010 totalled 189,930 units, with activity moderating towards demographic fundamentals by the final quarter of 2010.

"Housing starts moved slightly higher in January because of an increase in rural starts," said Bob Dugan, Chief Economist at CMHC's Market Analysis Centre. "Single-detached and multiple starts were down, but minimally."

The seasonally adjusted annual rate of urban starts decreased by 1.7 per cent to 146,900 units in January. Urban multiple starts moderated by 1.5 per cent in January to 82,900 units, while single urban starts moved lower by 2.0 per cent to 64,000 units.

January's seasonally adjusted annual rate of urban starts decreased by 19.0 per cent in the Prairie Region, by 7.9 per cent in British Columbia, and by 1.0 per cent in Quebec. Urban starts increased by 13.3 per cent in Atlantic Canada and by 10.3 per cent in Ontario.

Rural starts were estimated at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 23,500 units in January.
