Knock knock: Rising interest rates and new mortgage regulations will slow revenue

The Residential Building Construction industry in Ontario consists of operators engaged in constructing or renovating a range of residential structures. The industry has benefited from stronger economic performance in Ontario than the national economy overall, alongside falling unemployment and rising population levels. Meanwhile, favourable mortgage conditions and low interest rates also helped stimulate residential construction activity for most of the reporting period, facilitating demand for industry operators. The primary driver of industry growth over the past five years has been an expansion in housing starts. Industry performance is forecast to slow over the five years to more.
