Housing starts are considered as a key indicator, reflecting nation’s housing sector’ resilience. In case the number of housing starts rose more than expected, this would provide support to the loonie. Canada’s Mortgage and Housing Corporation will release the official numbers at 12:15 GMT.
In addition, selling prices of new homes in Canada probably rose 0.2% in March compared to a month ago, following a 0.2% increase in February.
