Building Permits

Regional Building Permits

The value of building permits issued by regions in the province was up 5.0% (unadjusted) in January, compared to the same month last year, with increased activity in most regions. Mainland/Southwest (+0.3%) posted a modest increase, but the value of planned construction in other parts of the province increased at double- and even triple-digit rates. The biggest spike was in Northeast, where permits soared 194.5% to $5.1 million, up from $1.7 million in January 2016. The boost was largely due to planned spending on industrial and commercial buildings. Nechako (+68.1%), North Coast (+65.5%) and Vancouver Island/Coast (+45.4%) also posted big increases, while planned spending in Mainland/Southwest (+18.4%) and Kootenay (+38.5%) rose at a slower pace.
