HOME CONSTRUCTION ON THE VERGE OF STABILIZING
Newly built homes add, of course, to the supply of homes available to buyers. And it appears that home construction in Canada is on the upswing.
For all of 2021, construction is projected to begin on as many as 230,000 new homes in Canada, up from a little over 217,800 in 2020, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC). Even more homes could get underway in 2022 (as many as 234,500) and 2023 (231,900).
“Housing starts will stabilize at levels consistent with household formation by the end of 2023,” according to CMHC.
