Building Permits

 An Early Measure of Development Activity

Building permit data can be used as an early measure of development activity.

Developers must get a building permit before any significant amount of work on a structure can begin. While most building permits lead to building construction, a small amount of planned construction never takes place.

We receive building permit data for the GTA on a monthly basis from Statistics Canada. This building permit data includes two basic statistics: the number of residential units created from building permits issued and the monetary value of building permits issued.
