New Study on Canadian Market for Building Products

For the first time since 2013, Home Innovation Research Labs is conducting the Canadian Builder Practices Survey, a study that quantifies home builder purchases of building materials. With the Canadian new home market shifting strongly from single- to multifamily, it's more important than ever to keep up on building products purchases there.

Complete your picture of the Canadian Residential Market with our Canadian Consumer Practices Reports available later this year. Report categories generally mirror the Builder Practices Reports (not all categories available for remodeling reports).

Considering the stability of the Canadian building products market, and the slow recovery of the U.S. new homes market, now is the time to consider keeping track of the Canadian market for new building materials.
