Greater Vancouver Housing Starts up in May 2016

Housing starts in BC cooled off of the near record-setting pace from the first five months of the year, recording 35,312 units at a seasonally adjusted annual rate, a 23 per cent decline from April's torrid pace of 45,000 units.

New home construction was driven higher by growth in apartments and other multi-family units, which were up 34 per cent on a year-over-year basis while single-detached starts were 32 per cent higher compared to last May. 

Looking at census metropolitan areas (CMA) in BC, total starts in the Vancouver CMA were up 36 per cent year-over-year in May due to demand for both single and multiple units.
