Value of city’s building permits down as others up

While the value of building permits went up in Ontario and Canadawide in August, permits went down in Ottawa in that same time period.

In Ontario, building permits totalled $5 billion in August, up 7.2 per cent from the month before, Statistics Canada said yesterday.

In Ottawa, August permits were valued at $159.6 million, down 2.4 per cent from the month before, when permits were valued at $163.7 million. However, just across the river, Gatineau saw an increase in the value of permits, jumping from $30.1 million in July to $35.6 million in August.
