The annual pace of Canadian housing starts fell to their lowest level in nearly two years in September.
Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says the seasonally adjusted annual rate came in at 188,683 units last month, down from 198,843 in August.
Thomson Reuters Eikon says economists had expected an annual rate of 210,000 for September.
September marks the third straight monthly decline.
The slowdown in the pace of housing starts comes amid rising interest rates from the Bank of Canada, and more restrictive mortgage rules.
