APRIL 2018 – BUILDING PERMITS UPDATE
Oshawa’s total ICI permit values declined by a quarter in the October-January period year-over-year. Institutional permit values led the overall decline, falling 72% in the four-month period year-over-year. Commercial permit values increased by 45%, accounting for just more than half of Oshawa’s ICI total. Industrial permit values increased by more than four-fold, although they only amounted to 22% of Oshawa’s total permit values overall. It should be noted that some industrial work, including much of the work on the Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment project, is not captured by municipal building permit statistics.
