Another good month for housing starts in Hamilton.
Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said housing starts in the Hamilton Census Metropolitan Area were trending up at 2,727 units in May compared to 2,289 units in April.
Residential construction was up across all types of homes.
Last month marked the highest number of monthly townhouse starts since September 2004.
Single-detached housing starts recorded their highest monthly level since April 2012.
CHMC says the improving economy, low mortgage rates, and better weather conditions were all reasons for the increase.
