First-Time Home Buyer Incentive

Every Canadian – no matter where you live – deserves a safe and affordable place to call home.

That’s why we’re going to make it easier for you to buy your first home.

We’re going to do that by giving you up to 10% off the purchase price with the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive.

And if you live in the greater Toronto, Vancouver or Victoria regions, we’re going to give you more help because we know housing prices are up to 60% higher for you. So if the home you want to buy is $789K or less, you’ll still qualify for the Incentive.

What did the Conservatives do? They voted against the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive and they have no plan to help address the real concerns Canadians have about being able to own your own home.

We believe in investing in you, which is why we’re taking these steps to help you make your dream of owning a home a reality.

Add your name if you agree Canadians deserve a safe and affordable place to call home.
