Building Permits, January 2002
Part I – Analysis
Highlights
• The momentum from last year’s record level of building
permits for housing has spilled over into January 2002.
Builders took out permits for $2.4 billion worth of housing
construction, a 24.9% increase from December, the best
monthly performance since January 1990.
• The increase was fuelled by gains for both single- and multifamily dwellings. Municipalities issued a record $22.0 billion
in residential permits last year.
• Permits for non-residential construction also rose, but to a
lesser extent. The value of non-residential building permits
increased 6.8% to $1.4 billion.
• In total, municipalities issued $3.8 billion in building permits,
a 17.4% increase from December and the highest monthly
figure in the last 12 years. This value was also 3.2% higher
than intentions in January last year.
• January’s level of housing permits was 23.1% ahead of
intentions in January 2001. However, non-residential
permits in January were 18.7% below the same month
last year.
• Among the metropolitan areas, the strongest start in
comparison with last year (in dollars) occurred in Edmonton
and Calgary where in both areas, the residential sector
played a key role. While 22 out of 26 metropolitan areas
posted a better start than last year in the residential sector,
17 of them were behind January 2001 level in the
non-residential sector.
Record high intentions for single-family
dwellings
• Builders took out $1.8 billion worth of permits for singlefamily dwellings in January, breaking a 12-year-old record.
This 24.6% gain over December was the eighth monthly
increase in single-family permits during the last nine
months. New single-family dwellings accounted for more
than 90% of this value; the remainder related to planned
renovations.
• Following a sharp drop in December, the value of multifamily permits rebounded with a 25.8% increase in January
to $561 million, powered by gains for semi-detached and
row houses.
• Several factors helped push up the value of residential
permits, including low mortgage rates and their positive
impact on the housing affordability, the high level of
immigration and the tight vacancy rates for apartments in
several centres. This is in line with other housing indicators
which also indicated a strong start for the housing market
in 2002. The number of housing starts increased 17.3% in
January, while sales of existing homes in Canada’s 25 major
markets were up 12.0 %.
• Ontario was by far the largest contributor (+41.2% to
$1.1 billion) to the strong rise from December as both
single- and multi-family permits posted substantial
advances. Alberta (+19.3%) and Québec (+16.2%) followed
far behind. For all three provinces, as well as New
Brunswick, January’s residential figures were the highest
during the last decade. The largest decline occurred in
Nova Scotia (-7.7%), following high construction intentions
in December.
Commercial, industrial permits fuelled
non-residential gain
• Permits for proposed industrial and commercial projects
fuelled the 6.8% gain in non-residential intentions in
January.
• Builders took out $242 million worth of industrial permits,
a 55.2% rebound from December; all categories increased
except factory and plant. The largest increase in industrial
permits was in Quebec (+214.6% to $81 million).
• Permits for commercial construction rose 18.1% to
$783 millions, due largely to recreation buildings and
increases in minor projects. British Columbia posted the
most significant increase as commercial projects more than
doubled.
• Intentions in the institutional component declined 21.9%
to $408 million, with education showing the greatest loss.
Despite this decline, the institutional component continues
to show an upward trend. Alberta recorded the largest
decrease in the institutional component (-81.4% to
$13 million).
• A strong increase in commercial intentions in the Vancouver
area led British Columbia to the largest gain in the
non-residential sector (+65.4% to $152 million). Alberta
recorded the largest monthly decrease (-13.6% to
$189 million) for the second month in a row.

Building Permits, January 2002
• Despite the increase in January, several indicators help
explain the continuing downward trend in the non-residential
sector. According to Statistics Canada’s Business
Conditions Survey, only 17% of manufacturers remained
positive about the prospects of increasing production in
the first quarter of 2002. Declining corporate operating
profits in 2001 and industrial capacity utilization rates may
have hurt the sector. In addition, non-residential
construction activity is expected to decrease this year,
according to private and public investment intentions
released on February 27, 2002.
vi Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
• Non-residential intentions marked their slowest to the year
start since 1999. January’s total of $1.4 billion was down
18.8% from January 2001. The decline was driven by two
components: industrial (-39.2%) and commercial (-22.2%).
Proposed institutional projects were 13.5% higher in
January compared with a year earlier.
• Ontario (-29.5%) and Quebec (-21.6%) were well behind
non-residential levels in January last year. The largest
increase was in Alberta (+18.5% to $189 million), due
largely to a strong increase in the Edmonton region.

Building Permits, January 2002
Part IV – Methodology, Concepts and Data Dissemination
Introduction
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.1 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.
Survey 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 to the survey is
mandatory; the survey does not use a predetermined
sample of municipalities. 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.
Collection of Data
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 form2 each month describing all major construction projects. 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 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.
Reports from municipalities which one 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. 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.
Types of Errors
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 a
false statement of the cost of construction are more probable. A qualitative survey conducted among major Canadian
municipalities has revealed an underestimation of the
declared value of buildings for which permits are issued.
Since permit fees are in most cases based on the value of
the construction, this leads unquestionably to underestimation of project values. The results of that survey also
reveal that, in half of the municipalities covered, the value
submitted by the applicant is not subject to any verification
by municipal officers.
Quality Control
Strict quality control procedures are applied to ensure that
collection, coding and data processing are as accurate as
possible. In addition to the usual checks to ensure that the
forms are fully completed, quality control procedures
established by the Business Survey Methods Division are
applied to the coded and processed data. 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.

Building Permits, January 2002
Reliability
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 mouth-to-mouth and year-toear changes in similar values of responding municipalities
and the historical pattern of the missing municipalities. No
imputation is done for lack of coverage, concealment or
the underevaluation of permits issued. For this reason, the
sampling error cannot be computed.
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.
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%.
Nature of and Basis for Classification
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
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.
18 Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
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,
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.
Cottage. Refers to dwellings that cannot be occupied
year-round 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.
Building Permits, January 2002
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-four 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-five
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 seventeen 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 non-standard geographic units are few in number and are mostly concentrated in the Maritime provinces; e.g. ‘Commission d’urbanisme de Madawaska’,
Greater Moncton District, Acadian Peninsula, etc.
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.
Revision of Data
Two types of revisions can affect the results of the Building
Permits Survey:
(1) 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.
(2) 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.
Adjustment for Seasonality
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:
residential, 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. These revisions apply only to
the last three years in the series. The revised data are
introduced into the CANSIM databank .
