Canadian housing starts maintained a stable pace in April, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.

The annualized pace of housing starts in Canada will drop 30 per cent in the second half of 2020 and remain muted for at least a year, with Western provinces taking the worst hit, according to Moody’s Analytics.
