Here's some good news if you're in Alberta's construction industry -- the value of building permits issued in March is up significantly from last year.
Before you start building, you need a permit. And Statistics Canada says this March the value of those permits was nearly 40 per cent higher than in March 2011. That suggests construction companies will be getting busier down the road.
Both Edmonton and Calgary saw growth of more than 30 per cent compared to 12 months earlier. (bd)
