TORONTO May 8 (Reuters) - Canadian housing starts declined in April from March, largely in line with expectations, a report from the country's housing agency showed on Friday.

The report from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp showed the seasonally adjusted annualized rate of housing starts fell to 181,814 in April from a downwardly revised 189,546 units in March. Forecasters had expected 182,000 starts. (Reporting by Jeffrey Hodgson; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
