JULY 2017 – BUILDING PERMITS UPDATE
Oshawa’s ICI permit values increased by 7% in January-May compared to the same period last year. The only sector that saw permit value growth was Oshawa’s commercial sector, with permit values up by 76% compared to this point last year. Just over half of ICI permit activity in Oshawa came from commercial projects between January-May. Institutional permit values fell by 26%, and industrial permits declined by 30%. It should be noted that municipal building permit statistics do not always catch construction activity on industrial projects like the Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment.
