Oct. 10, 2013 - Canadian municipalities issued building permits worth $6.3 billion in August, down 21.2 per cent from July, according to Statistics Canada. This decline followed a 21.4 per cent increase the previous month and was the result of lower construction intentions in both non-residential and residential sectors.
Sept. 21, 2013 - The Ontario legislature voted down Bill 73, The Fair and Open Tendering Act, on Friday. The Act would have amended the Labour Relations Act to prevent municipalities and school boards from being bound by provincially negotiated contracts with construction unions. Whether you agree with the proposed bill or not, the debate in the legislature makes interesting reading for anyone in the construction sector in Ontario:
Sept. 12, 2013 - Contractors took out building permits worth $8 billion in July, up 20.7 per cent from June. The total value of building permits continued to trend upward on the strength of six gains in seven months. The increase in July came mainly from higher construction intentions for commercial buildings in Ontario, Alberta and Quebec.
May 7, 2013 – The American Architectural Manufacturers Association and the Window and Door Manufacturers Association have jointly released the AAMA/WDMA 2012/2013 U.S. Industry Statistical Review and Forecast. This report delivers timely information on window, door and skylight market trends and product relationships. Historic data for 2006 through 2012 and forecast data for 2013 through 2015 also are included in the report. Forecasts are based on projections of construction activity as of March 2013.
April 4, 2013 – Statistics Canada says investment in construction and machinery and equipment should reach $398.2 billion in 2013, up 1.7 per cent from 2012. But the increase, based on forecasts of public and private organizations, including the housing sector, would be the smallest since the economic downturn in 2009.
March 7, 2013 - Statistics Canada says municipalities issued building permits worth $5.8 billion in January, up 1.7 per cent from December. The increase in the residential sector more than offset a decrease in the non-residential sector. Despite the advance, the total value of building permits has been trending downwards since October 2012. The increase in construction intentions came from every province except Alberta and Quebec. New Brunswick posted the largest advance followed closely by Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
A little over a year ago, the federal government pulled the plug on the EcoEnergy Retrofit Homes Program, which was designed to provide grants to homeowners with up to $5,000 for pre-retrofit assessments and energy retrofits.
