Construction down in 2012

Construction activity in Burnaby last year was at the lowest levels since 2009.

Building permit figures show permits with a total construction value of $514.7 million were issued in 2012.

That's less than in 2011 ($615.5 million) and 2010 ($539.7 million). In fact, the last time there was less construction activity was in 2009 when almost $422 million in permits was issued during the global economic downturn.
