Building permits were down in November, in both the number of permits issued and their values.

62 permits were issued in November with a combined value of just over $11.5 million, compared to 74 permits issued in November 2018, worth a combined $23.2 million. Year-to-date totals are sitting at just over half the value of the same period last year.

Notable permits for November include construction of shop and office space at a courier distribution centre in the Queens Business Park valued at $3.9 million, $1.2 million worth of interior renovations for Alberta Health Services administration offices at 50 (Gaetz) Avenue and 43 street, and a $708,000 permit for building a stage for Rogers Hometown Hockey.
