Building permits

The Building Permits Survey of Canadian municipalities collects data on the value of construction intentions for buildings in the non-residential sector and the number of dwellings authorized and value of construction projects in the residential sector. Building permit data are widely used as a leading indicator for the construction industry since the issuance of a building permit is one of the first steps in the construction process. Investment in non-residential building construction represents the spending value for enterprises and governments, for industrial, commercial and institutional buildings.

Capacity utilization rates

Capacity utilization rates are measures of the intensity with which industries use their production capacity. Capacity use is the percentage of actual to potential output. The data are used by economic analysts in various Canadian government departments and agencies such as Statistics Canada, the Bank of Canada, Finance Canada, Industry Canada, and in provincial agencies, trade associations, universities and international organizations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
