Canada Housing Starts Show Low Rates Supporting Building – Bloomberg

Canadian housing starts unexpectedly increased for a second month in March and building permits rose in February, evidence that low borrowing costs are supporting construction.

Starts were 184,028 at a seasonally adjusted annual pace during the month, up from a revised 183,207 in February, the Ottawa-based Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp. said on its website today.
