OTTAWA, July 9 (UPI) -- Housing starts in Canada trended higher in June compared to May, the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp. said Tuesday.

The trend in housing starts, which is a six-month rolling average on a seasonally adjusted annual basis, came to 184,514 in June. In the previous month, the adjusted six-month rolling average was 184,087.

The stand alone 12-month annual rate for June, seasonally adjusted, was 199,586, down from 204,616 in May, the national housing agency said.
