Sask. construction activity tops $275M in August

Building permit values in Saskatchewan increased 4.7 per cent to $275.3 million in August from $262.9 million in July, largely on the strength of residential construction activity, according to the monthly building permit report released Tuesday by Statistics Canada. Despite the nearly five per cent increase between July and August, the value of building permits issued by Saskatchewan municipalities was down slightly (0.4 per cent) from the $276.5 million issued in August 2013, the federal agency said.
