Building Permits, February 2002
Part I – Analysis
Highlights
Residential building sites will be flourishing with activity in
the next months as municipalities issued $2.4 billion in
housing permits, virtually unchanged from January’s
12-year high. There were just over 18 000 new dwelling
units authorized in February 2002, the highest number since
March 1990.
Low mortgage rates, high consumer confidence and
scarcity of existing dwellings for rent or available on the
resale market actually contribute to push potential buyers
toward the new-home market.
In the non-residential sector, the picture was quite different.
Builders took out $1.3 billion worth of permits in February,
down 10.8%, primarily the result of a substantial decline in
intentions in the commercial sector. Permits in the nonresidential sector have been on a downward trend since
the beginning of 2001.
Tremendous demand for single-family dwellings
Following a record level in January, the value of singlefamily permits decreased a slight 2.8% to $1.8 billion. The
values of permits for single-family dwellings – the largest
contributor in the housing sector- for January and February
were the two highest monthly figures on the record. For
multi-family dwellings, municipalities issued permits worth
$605 million in February (+8.2%), the sixth monthly increase
in the last seven months.
The outlook for the residential sector is positive as housing
investment is expected to rise 1.3% in 2002 as a result of
increases in new housing and renovations, according to
Statistics Canada’s latest survey of private and public
investment intentions.
At the provincial level, strong increases in the residential
sector in British Columbia (+21.3% to $346 million) and in
New Brunswick (+42.1% to $45 million) were offset by a
substantial decline in Ontario (-7.3% to $1.0 billion).
The total value of building permits issued by municipalities
lost ground in February as construction intentions in the
non-residential sector hit their lowest level in 21 months.
Builders took out $3.7 billion worth of building permits, down
4.2% from January.
On a year-to-date basis, the total value of single-family
permits issued during the first two months of 2002 were up
32.8% from the same period last year. The cumulative value
of multi-family permits remained virtually unchanged.
This decline should be kept in perspective since
construction intentions were at a 12-year high in January.
February’s total was 11.5% higher than the average monthly
level in 2001, mainly the result of strong construction
intentions in the residential sector.
Cumulative levels this year were above last year’s levels in
all 10 provinces in the residential sector. Advances in singlefamily permits contributed mostly to these gains, except in
Newfoundland and Labrador and Saskatchewan. The largest
advances (in dollars) were posted by Alberta (+47.7% to
$762 million) and Quebec (+31.9% to $875 million).
On a year-to-date basis, the cumulative value of building
permits in January and February 2002 was up 5.6% from
the same two months last year. A 15.2% decline in the
non-residential sector was more than offset by a strong
23.0% increase in the residential sector.
Regionally, the census metropolitan areas of Edmonton and
Calgary began 2002 strongly; in both regions, a substantial
rise in the construction intentions for housing was largely
behind this fast start. However, the gain shown in the overall
cumulative value of building permits came from nonmetropolitan areas.
Commercial component pushed down
non-residential sector
The value of building permits declined in the non-residential
sector in February on the heels of sluggish activity in the
commercial component.
Commercial intentions plunged 27.2% to $584 million after
a 21.0% increase in January. Except for laboratories, all
categories declined in this component. After posting increases in the last three months, Quebec recorded the most
significant decline.

v
Building Permits, February 2002
On the other hand, building intentions in the industrial
component maintained their momentum, increasing 23.7%
to $307 million, after a large increase in January. It was
the sixth monthly gain over the last seven months. The
factory and plant category contributed the most to the rise
in the industrial component. The largest increase in
industrial permits was in Ontario.
Institutional building permits remained virtually unchanged
from January, rising only 0.4% to $405 million. The increase
in the welfare home category and medical and hospital
category offset a decline in proposed education projects.
Ontario recorded the largest decline, and Manitoba the
largest advance.
At the provincial level, the most significant decrease in nonresidential permits occurred in Quebec (-34.7% to $254 million) because of a large drop in the commercial component.
The Montreal region contributed strongly to this decrease.
In contrast, Manitoba posted the largest increase (+101.1%
to $68 million), led by a strong showing in the institutional
component.
vi Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
On a year-to-date basis, non-residential building intentions
reached $2.7 billion during the first two months of 2002,
down 15.2% from the same period last year. Two components were well below last year’s levels – industrial
(-24.9%) and commercial (-26.5%). Institutional permits
rose 30.8%.
Several indicators help explain the continuing downward
trend in non-residential sector. According to the latest data,
industries operated at 80.3% capacity in the fourth quarter
of 2001, the sixth consecutive quarterly decline. Also, a
deterioration in profits has hurt the non-residential
construction intentions.
Among the provinces, Manitoba had the largest increase
in the non-residential sector on a year-to-date basis
(+99.5% to $101 million). The strongest decrease was
recorded in Ontario (-19.6% to $1.2 billion), led by a
substantial decline in Toronto and Ottawa regions.

Building Permits, February 2002
Part IV – Monthly Survey of Building Permits - Data Quality, Concepts
and Methodology
The following information should be used to ensure a clear
understanding of the basic concepts that define the data
provided in this product, of the underlying methodology of
the survey, and of key aspects of the data quality. This
information will provide you with a better understanding of
the strengths and limitations of the data, and of how they
can be effectively used and analysed. The information
may be of particular importance to you when making
comparisons with data from other surveys or sources of
information, and in drawing conclusions regarding change
over time.
Data Sources and Methodology
The purpose of the Monthly Survey of Building Permits
issued by Canadian municipalities is to collect data on
construction intentions. The results of this survey are used
by C.M.H.C. (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation)
as a reference base for conducting a monthly survey of
housing starts and completions in accordance with its
mandate. The statistics on building permits are also
essential for the computation of capital expenditures.
Furthermore, since the issuance of a building permit is one
of the first steps in the construction process, these statistics
are widely used as a leading indicator of building activity.
General methodology : The Building Permits Survey
covers all Canadian municipalities that issue permits. The
number of Canadian municipalities currently surveyed
exceeds 2,350, representing all the provinces and territories.
They account for 95% of the Canadian population.
Participation in the survey is mandatory; the survey does
not use a predetermined sample of municipalities. The
communities representing the other 5% of the population
are very small, and their level of building activity have little
impact on the total. In practice, all urban agglomerations
are represented in the survey, as well as a fair percentage
of rural municipalities. With certain exceptions, the minimum
coverage corresponds to the municipalities already included
in the Housing Starts and Completions C.M.H.C.’s Survey.
Non-responding municipalities that issue permits are urged
on a regular basis to respond to the Building Permit Survey.
Therefore, the number of municipalities covered is increasing continually.
The survey is usually conducted by mail, although certain
municipalities choose to respond by telephone. The
municipal officer responsible for issuing permits is asked
to fill out a form each month describing all major construction projects.
The municipalities forward a copy of their completed report
to Statistics Canada Head Office and another copy to the
local office of the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (C.M.H.C.). To reduce their overhead, an increasing
number of respondents are producing a computerized
report. Only those municipalities that are late in reporting
and that are included in the above-mentioned C.M.H.C.
survey are subject to follow-up by telephone.
The reports received at Statistics Canada Head Office are
verified, coded and processed.
Strict quality control procedures are applied to ensure that
collection, coding and data processing are as accurate as
possible. Checks are also performed on totals and the
magnitude of data. Reports that fail to meet the quality
standards are subject to verification and are corrected as
required.
Imputations are required for each characteristic for which
no report has been received. These are calculated
automatically, subject to certain constraints, by applying to
previously used values, the month-to-month and year-toyear changes in similar values of responding municipalities
and the historical pattern of the missing municipalities. No
estimation is done for lack of coverage, concealment or
the underevaluation of permits issued. For this reason, the
sampling error cannot be computed.
The monthly statistics are not corrected for cancelled or
expired permits. According to the municipal officers, the
proportion of cancelled and unused permits is below 5%.
Reference period : The reference period for data collection
purposes is the calendar month. Reports from municipalities
which are part of a census metropolitan area or a census
agglomeration must be received within 20 days following
the month of reference. The other municipalities have 30
days to produce their reports. Results are released between
35 and 40 days after the end of the reference month. Annual
data for the preceding calendar year are released with the
data for the January survey month.
Revisions : Two types of revisions can affect the results of
the Building Permits Survey:
Revisions Due to the Correction of Coding Errors
These types of revisions are done on a monthly basis only
to the data pertaining to the month preceding the reference
period.
Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001 17
Building Permits, February 2002
Revisions Due to the addition of Late Reports
Late reports for the month preceding the reference period
are incorporated into the survey results on a continuing
basis. However, reports received after the two-month
deadline following the reference month are introduced only
at the end of the year. As a result, the data for the last
twelve months are subject to revision.
Seasonal Adjustment : Seasonal changes cause
predictable fluctuations in the data. The data series
disseminated includes both seasonally adjusted (i.e.,
excludes predictable annual influences) and the unadjusted
data. Seasonally adjusted data for the total number of
housing units as well as for the aggregate value of building
permits are obtained indirectly, i.e., by adding their
seasonally adjusted components. The total number of
dwelling units is obtained by summing the seasonally
adjusted data for single-family and multiple-use units; the
total value of building permits is obtained by summing the
following elements: single-family and multiple-family
dwellings, industrial, commercial and institutional. Some
series contain no apparent seasonality. In these cases,
unadjusted values have been tabulated and agregated to
the adjusted values of the other series. At the end of the
year, the chronological series adjusted for seasonality are
revised to take into account the most recent seasonal
fluctuations. Generally, these revisions apply only to the
last three years in the series. The revised data are
introduced into the CANSIM databank.
Concepts and Variables Measured
The statistical data presented in this product refers to the
number of dwelling units authorized and the value of
building permits. The value of the permits reported
includes the following expenditures: materials, labour, profit
and overhead. The cost of land is never included in the
estimated value of the permit while acquisition costs (legal
fees, surveying fees and accrued interest) may be included
at times.
The classification used in this publication deals strictly with
structures for which a building permit was issued. Permits
are generally issued for the following: construction of new
buildings, alterations, additions, renovations, etc. Minor
repair jobs such as painting, tiling, roofing, etc., for which
no permit is required, and engineering work (such as dams,
roads, pipelines, etc.), which, by definition, is not a building,
are not included in the building permit series. Estimates of
such work may be obtained from the publications Capital
expenditures by type of asset (cat. no. 61-223) and Private
and Public Investment in Canada Intentions (cat. no. 61-205).
The description given by the municipalities as to the type
of building (box #6 of Section A on the form) and the type
of work involved (box #7 of Section A on the form) forms
18 Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
the basis for classification. The classification of buildings
into major groups and subgroups is based on the following:
intended use in the case of new buildings; present or
intended use of buildings to which improvements are to be
made; present use of the existing structure where the
proposed construction is intended to provide additional
facilities; principal use of the structure where the proposed
construction has more than one intended use; however,
where the building contains dwellings, the value of the
construction is divided between residential and nonresidential use.
Building Categories
This publication, uses the following classification for the
value of permits issued for construction of new buildings
or for improvements: residential, industrial, commercial,
institutional and government.
Residential. Includes all buildings intended for private
occupancy whether on a permanent basis or not. Dwellings
are divided into the following types: single-family, mobile,
cottage, semi-detached, row house and apartment building.
Industrial. Includes all buildings used for manufacturing
and processing; transportation, communication and other
utilities, and agriculture, forestry and mining.
Commercial. Includes all buildings used to house activities
related to the tertiary sector, such as stores, warehouses,
garages, office buildings, theatres, hotels, funeral parlours
and beauty salons.
Institutional and Government. Includes expenditures
made by the community, public and government for
buildings and structures like schools, universities, hospitals,
clinics, churches, homes for the aged.
The number of dwelling units indicates the number of
self contained dwelling units created. This should not be
confused with the number of structures. For example, an
apartment building containing six dwellings will be shown
as six dwelling units. When an existing structure is converted
into additional housing units, the number of units added is
included. This publication uses the following classification
for dwelling units:
Single-family. Refers to dwellings commonly called “single
house”. It includes single dwellings that are completely
isolated on all sides, including single dwellings linked to
other dwellings below ground. Included are bungalows, split
levels, two-storey single-family homes built by conventional
methods or prefabricated.
Mobile homes. Refers to houses designed and constructed
to be transported on their own chassis and for easy moving.
Building Permits, February 2002
Cottage. Refers to dwellings that cannot be occupied yearround or on a permanent basis because the facilities
required for comfort are inadequate.
Double or Semi-detached. Refers to dwellings in which
each of the two dwellings are side by side and joined by a
common wall or garage, but not attached to any other
building and surrounded by open space.
Row Dwellings. Refers to a row of three or more dwellings
attached to each other without dwellings above or below.
Apartment Building. Includes dwellings in a variety of
buildings such as duplexes, semi-detached duplexes,
triplexes, row duplexes, apartments as such and dwellings
adjacent to non-residential structures.
Conversion. Refers to the number of dwellings added by
conversion of existing structures.
Geographic Classification
Geographic entities are classified according to Standard
Geographical Classification (SGC) used by Statistics
Canada. Each reporting entity is assigned a twelve-digit
SGC code for identification according to the following
geographic levels:
Province and Territory (PR) : There are ten provinces
and three territories.
Economic Region (ER) : Refers to intraprovincial regions
established by the Standards Division of Statistics Canada.
There are seventy-six ERs.
Census Division (CD) : Refers to a group of census
subdivisions established by provincial law. There are two
hundred and ninety-one CDs (data on this geographic group
is available on request).
Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) : Its delineation
corresponds to the 1996 Census definition. The term CMA
refers to the main labour market area of an urban area (the
urbanized core) of at least 100,000 population, based on
the Census population figures. The twenty-seven CMAs
are shown in this publication. Although the 1996 Census
defines the Ottawa-Hull area as a single CMA, the area is
shown in this publication as two separate entities since it is
located in two different provinces.
Census Agglomeration (CA) : Refers to the smaller labour
market area of an urbanized core of at least 10,000
population, as defined by the 1996 Census. There are one
hundred and eighteen CAs in Canada. When a CA overlaps
the boundaries of two provinces, it is shown partly in each
province. The Lloydminster agglomeration is an exception
to this rule. It is treated as if it was totally located in Alberta.
Other Municipalities of at Least 10,000 Population :
Refers to municipalities not included in census agglomerations but with populations of at least 10,000 inhabitants.
The distinction is made between these municipalities and
CAs in order to permit comparison between the Building
Permits Survey and the Housing Starts and Completions
Survey which refers to this geographical concept.
Rural Area : Refers to all geographic entities not included
in a CMA or CA and not identified as an urban centre by
the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
Census Subdivision (CSD) : Refers to the general term
applying to municipalities, Indian reserves, Indian settlements and unorganized territories. However, since Indian
reserves and settlements do not issue building permits,
they are not included in this publication.
Non-standard Geographic Unit : The geographic units
shown in this publication do not all satisfy the above definition of census subdivision. Some provincial or municipal
administrations producing monthly reports do not correspond to the official geographic entities; they are nevertheless shown in this publication under the geographic entity
used by these administrations. These so-called nonstandard geographic units are few in number and are mostly
concentrated in the Maritime provinces.
Territorial revisions
Territorial boundaries were established according to the
1996 Census definitions. Changes in boundaries, status or
name of census subdivisions between censuses are
introduced in this publication on a yearly basis. Changes
affecting the other geographic units (CMAs, CAs, CDs and
ERs) are introduced every five years, eighteen months
following the census.
Data Accuracy
Since the building permit data are extracted from municipal
administrative documents, two types of response errors are
possible: errors attributable to the permit applicant and
errors in transcription by the responding municipality.
However, experience has shown that transcription errors
are not very common and the increasing number of municipalities producing computerized reports tends to reduce
the frequency of this type of error. Errors attributable to an
understatement of the cost of construction are more
probable. Since permit fees are in most cases based on
the value of the construction, this leads unquestionably to
under-estimation of project values.
The other source of error are the processing error and the
non-response error. In 2001, 99.5% of the municipalities
covered by the survey sent their monthly Building Permits
reports.

Comparability of Data and Related Sources
Related Products and Services
Comparison of data must be done with reservation
considering that the methods of issuing permits and the
methods of estimating building values can differ from one
municipality to another. Also, comparisons involving different
periods must take into account the constant increase in
the number of municipalities participating in the survey.
