Building Permits

 

Canadian municipalities issued $7.5 billion worth of building permits in February, down 2.5% from January. The national decrease resulted mainly from lower construction intentions for single-family dwellings and institutional structures. Ontario and Alberta led the five provinces reporting declines in February. The decline in single-family construction intentions was moderated by an increase in the multi-family component. The permits issued indicate intentions to build 19,903 new dwellings (+2.9%): 13,445 multi-family units (+9.3%) and 6,458 single units (-8.3%).

20/20 Vision

David Gordon

For the past couple of years the industrial segment has been “challenged.” Much of this was driven by the decline in the oil and gas market, which had a significant ripple effect. Concurrently, a strong U.S. dollar hurt exports for many OEMs and the agriculture market was soft, further hurting that segment’s equipment market.

Overall, the industrial decline significantly impacted distributors and manufacturers. And a key product category, industrial automation and control, was the most impacted. But according to manufacturers and distributors in many parts of North America, the industrial market appears to be turning. Growth, compared to last year, is coming back. Some is due to increased investment in energy projects.
