A Canada Mortgage and Housing report says the number of housing starts in Brandon are down compared to last year.
However, that doesn't mean the housing starts market in the Wheat City is weak.
Spokesperson Diane Himbeault says last year was our best year on record and it would be tough to reach that goal again.
She says single starts in comparison to last September were exactly the same, while multi-family starts were down 12%.
When comparing January to September in 2012 to this year, we're down 15% overall.
