Calgary Surge Leads Canada Building Permits Higher in October

Canadian building permits rose by the most in four months in October, paced by gains in multi-family and institutional intentions in Calgary.

The nationwide value of municipal permits rose 9.1 percent from a month earlier, Statistics Canada said Tuesday from Ottawa. Permits for housing jumped 15.5 percent on the month while non-residential declined 0.2 percent.
