Construction intentions in BC jumped 14.5 per cent in September, leading all provinces. The total dollar volume of permits exceeded $1 billion for the second time in the past three months, led by continued strength in non-residential permitting activity, which jumped 44 per cent month-over-month and 163 per cent year-over-year. September residential permits were 4 per cent lower compared to August, but were 14 per cent higher than September 2011.
