Complete Building Permit Update Unavailable
As a result of permit process and system updates in the spring of 2018, we are still unable to report residential improvement data.

Because we have had numerous requests for commercial, industrial and institutional numbers, we have decided to post the report as is, noting the residential improvement data is incomplete. We are working with subject matter experts and hope to have these issues resolved soon.
Should you have any questions, contact Lisa Graham at lisa.graham2@edmonton.ca or call 780-496-2662.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

The Monthly Building Permit Report provides frequent and up-to-date information on construction trends in Edmonton, based on building permits issued by the City of Edmonton.

The report also shows year-to-date values and provides a comparison to the previous year and the five-year average.

Construction values represent the estimated construction value of issued building permits and are not actual construction starts. Values for the Edmonton region include all surrounding cities, towns, and villages, as defined and reported by Statistics Canada.
