Building Permits Make Year-to-Year Gains

Released on January 10, 2018

November building permits in Saskatchewan were up 17.3 per cent (seasonally adjusted) over November 2016, the third highest percentage increase among the provinces.  That’s well ahead of the 1.3 per cent posted nationally.

The total value of building permits issued in Saskatchewan in November was $181 million.

“Stronger building permit numbers is a good sign for the province’s construction sector and overall economy,” Economy Minister Steven Bonk said.  “Compared to the national average of only 1.3 per cent, Saskatchewan is showing it's continued strength at 17.3 per cent.”

The majority of the growth was in non-residential permits which increased by 49.3 per cent.
