New Government Mortgage Incentive

Under the 2019 Federal Budget proposal, the Canadian Government may take on part of the cost for First Time Home Buyers. 


The New Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation ( CMHC ) would use up to $1.25 billion over three years to help eligable Canadians lower their mortgage costs. The money would go to First Time Home Buyers for insured mortgages. Borrowers would still be required to put down a minimum deposit of 5%.

- First Time Home Buyer 
- Minimum Deposit of 5% 
- Household must have an Annual Income of Under $120,000

- Mortgage Amount will be Capped at Four Times the Buyers Income , up to a Max of $480,000 (plus Deposit) 


Buyers purchasing a newly built home will receive a 10% incentive, and 5% for existing homes. 


CMHC New Home Buyers Plan


Mortgage applicants will still have to qualify under the mortgage stress test at this time. However, the incentive will help lower the bar.


Home Buyers Plan Improves


The Home Buyers Plan (HBP ) which currently allowes First Time Home Buyers to take out up to $25,000 from their Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) to finance the purchase of a home without having to pay tax on the withdrawl. The budget raised this cap from $25,000 to $35,000 as of March 19th 2019. 


Home Buyers must put the money back into their RRSP over 15 years to avoid their withdrawl being added to their Taxable Income.
