The latest data from Statistics Canada shows Canadians spent more than $71-billion on home improvement in 2015, or an average of $5,000 per household. That's an increase from $45-billion in 2006. The good news, according to economists, is that growth in home improvement spending is not only largely sustainable - even when financed by debt - but generally bodes well for the long-term health of the Canadian economy.
"We say there are about 800,000 jobs in Canada related to the home renovation industry," Mr. Norman continues. "Renovation spending is important and it's growing at a modest but continuously positive rate. It's fuelling jobs, and you wouldn't want to see a sharp downturn in the sector given the size of the work force that depends on it."
