Canadian housing starts slow in March

TORONTO, April 8 (Reuters) - Canadian housing starts fell more than expected in March, according to data released on Tuesday that was likely to underscore expectations the country’s housing market is stabilizing.

A report from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp showed the seasonally adjusted annualized rate of housing starts fell to 156,823 units last month from a downwardly revised 190,639 in February, below economists’ forecast for 191,000 in March.

February’s housing starts were originally reported as 192,094 units. (Reporting by Leah Schnurr; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
