First-Time Home Buyer Incentive for Canada

Did you know ?

Canada has a first time home buyer incentive.

This incentive aims to help first-time homebuyers without adding to their financial burdens. There are no additional monthly payments.

With this incentive, Government of Canada provides:

5% or 10% for a first-time buyer’s purchase of a newly constructed home5% for a first-time buyer’s purchase of a resale (existing) home 5% for a first-time buyer’s purchase of a new or resale mobile/manufactured home

The incentive is available to first-time homebuyers with qualified annual incomes of $120,000 or less. A participant’s insured mortgage and the incentive amount cannot be greater than four times the participant’s qualified annual income.


Here’s an example.

Anita wants to buy a new home for $400,000. Under the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive, Anita can apply to receive $40,000 in a shared equity mortgage (10% of the cost of a new home) from the Government of Canada. This lowers the amount she needs to borrow and reduces her monthly expenses. As a result, Anita’s mortgage is $228 less a month or $2,736 a year.*
