The total number of building permits issued this February was 159, which reflected a slight decrease from the 172 building permits issued at this time last year.

Building permits remain strong in the first two months of the year with over $46 million in construction value for the 324 building permits issued.

Overall, multi-attached dwellings and commercial permits continue to grow in 2018 and reflect a 60 per cent and 27 per cent increase, respectively.

“It is always encouraging to see our residents and business owners re-investing in their properties,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “The diversity of construction happening in our city has helped to keep the overall value of permits increasing so far in 2018.”
