Building Permits, July 2001
Part I – Analysis
Highlights
•
July’s decline came in large part from Ontario (-17.4% to
$819 million), but also from Quebec (-9.1% to $290 million). In both provinces, the multi-family component was
behind the decrease. On the other hand, the largest
growth was recorded in Alberta (+5.1% to $271 million).
•
For the January-to-July period, the healthy state of the
residential sector has been brought about by gains in
both multi-family (+20.3%) and single-family (+5.4%)
dwellings. The cumulative value for 2001 was the housing
sector’s best result for the first seven months of any
recorded year.
•
Compared with the first seven months of 2000, the largest
cumulative gains (in dollars) occurred in Ontario (+8.2%
to $6.3 billion) and in British Columbia (+25.4% to $1.6 billion). Both provinces posted gains in single- and multifamily dwellings. Nova Scotia had the largest decline
(-16.8%).
July 2001
•
•
•
•
The value of building permits issued in July, $3.4 billion,
was unchanged from June. A decline in permits for
housing was offset by a rebound in the non-residential
sector.
The value of non-residential permits jumped 13.9% to
$1.6 billion, owing mainly to a substantial gain in the
commercial component. In contrast, after two important
monthly increases, the residential sector dropped 10.2%
to $1.8 billion as construction intentions for multi-family
dwellings plunged.
For the first seven months of the year, the value of building
permits totaled $23.5 billion, up 13.0% from the same
period last year. Advances in each component of both
residential (+9.3% to $12.7 billion) and non-residential
(+17.7% to $10.8 billion) sectors contributed to this
showing, the strongest since 1989.
Regionally, by far the largest growth (in dollars) came
from the Montreal region, largely due to projects in the
commercial sector. In Montreal, the value of building
permits was 49.5% higher for the first seven months of
2001 than the same period last year. The Toronto region
also posted a sizeable advance due to strong housing
construction intentions.
Commercial permits fuelled the gain in the
non-residential sector
•
July’s 13.9% rebound in non-residential building permits
followed two straight monthly declines and was led by
commercial and institutional intentions.
•
The value of commercial permits jumped 23.3% to
$850 million due largely to the gains in office buildings,
warehouses and buildings for trade and services. Ontario
recorded the largest growth (+69.4% to $366 million) due
to high construction intentions in the Toronto region.
•
Institutional intentions increased 8.5% to $510 million,
the best showing ever for this component. The medical
and hospital category, as well as government buildings
and social service projects showed the most significant
increases. Provincially, the highest growth for this
component occurred in British Colombia.
•
Only the industrial component showed a decline in July
(-1.8% to $242 million), pushed down by the utility and
transportation category. Alberta recorded the largest drop
in this component.
•
Among the provinces, Ontario recorded the largest
increase in the non-residential sector (+23.2% to
$713 million) due to strong results for the commercial
component in the Toronto region and to institutional
intentions in the Kitchener region. In contrast, following
a robust gain in June, Prince Edward Island recorded
the most significant decrease.
Monthly Review
Residential sector pulled down by a plunge in
multi-family permits
•
Following a peak in June, municipalities issued
$438 million in permits for multi-family dwellings in July,
down 32.1% from the previous month. Permits for singlefamily dwellings were up slightly, +0.6% to $1.3 billion.
•
Despite the decline in July, the outlook for the housing
market remains encouraging as housing starts, sales of
existing homes and renovation spending are expected
to be up in 2001 in comparison with 2000, according to
Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Furthermore, mortgage rates are still advantageous, vacancy
rates are tight in several centres and prices for new homes
have continued to increase. The advance shown in the
cumulative housing permits so far this year is consistent
with these results.
Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001 v
Building Permits, July 2001
•
On a year-to-date basis, municipalities issued $10.8 billion in permits for the non-residential sector from January
to July, up 17.7% from the same period of 2000. This
was the best result since 1989, and was fuelled mainly
by advances in commercial (+15.8% to $5.9 billion) and
institutional (+36.3% to $2.7 billion) construction
intentions. A rise in the industrial component (+4.6% to
$2.2 billion) also contributed to the gain.
vi Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
•
Low vacancy rates for office and industrial buildings in
several major centres combined with high capacity
utilization rates and higher proposed construction
spending by municipalities are consistent with the gain
in non-residential building intentions in 2001.
•
Strong increases in non-residential permits issued for
the Montreal area led Quebec to the largest gain among
the provinces (+47.2% to $2.5 billion), with all three
components showed growth. In contrast, Nova Scotia
posted the largest decline (-37.9% to $162 million) due
to decreases in all three components.

Building Permits, July 2001
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 2,500, representing
all the provinces and territories. They account for 94% 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 Sur vey. 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, July 2001
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.
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,
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.
Building Categories
Row Dwellings. Refers to a row of three or more dwellings
attached to each other without dwellings above or below.
This publication, uses the following classification for the
Apartment Building. Includes dwellings in a variety of
18 Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001
Building Permits, July 2001
buildings such as duplexes, semi-detached duplexes,
triplexes, row duplexes, apartments as such and dwellings
adjacent to non- residential structures.
–
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.
Conversion. Refers to the number of dwellings added by
conversion of existing structures.
–
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.
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.
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
Statistics Canada – Catalogue no. 64-001 19
Building Permits, July 2001
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 .
