    Are you a First time buyer looking to purchase a home. There are a number of Programs for First time buyers buying a home in Ontario. Here is some information on programs below. 


    Definition of a First Time Buyer

    You are considered a first-time homebuyer if you meet one of following qualifications:

    • you have never purchased a home before
    • you’ve recently experienced a breakdown of a marriage or common-law partnership
    • in the last 4 years, you did not occupy a home that you or you current spouse or common-law partner owned

    First - Time Home Buyer Incentive

    The First-Time Home Buyer Incentive helps first-time homebuyers without adding to their financial burdens. Eligible first-time homebuyers who have the minimum down payment for an insured mortgage can apply to finance a portion of their home purchase through a shared equity mortgage with the Government of Canada. Visit the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive for more details.


    First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit

    The FTHB Tax Credit offers a $5,000 non-refundable income tax credit amount on a qualifying home acquired after January 27, 2009. For an eligible individual, the credit will provide up to $750 in federal tax relief. Go to the Home Buyers’ Credit section to see if you are eligible.


    Home Buyers Plan

    The Home Buyers' Plan (HBP) is a program that allows you to withdraw up to $35,000 in a calendar year from your registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) to buy or build a qualifying home for yourself or for a related person with a disability. Review the Home Buyers' Plan for more information.


    Land Transfer Tax Rebate

    First-time homebuyers of an eligible home may be eligible for a refund of all or part of the land transfer tax. To claim a refund, you must be at least 18 years of age, you cannot have owned a home or an interest in a home anywhere in the world, and your spouse cannot have owned a home or interest in a home, anywhere in the world while he or she was your spouse. Previous ownership in a home means you do not qualify for the land transfer tax first-time homebuyers refund. The method of acquiring the home (e.g., purchase, gift or through an inheritance) is not relevant. You cannot re‑qualify as a first‑time homebuyer. This rule may be different from other federal programs for first‑time homebuyers (e.g., the Canada Revenue Agency Home Buyers' Plan).

    HST New Housing Rebate

    You may qualify for a rebate of part of the GST or HST that you paid on the purchase price or cost of building your new house, on the cost of substantially renovating or building a major addition onto your existing house, or on converting a non-residential property into a house. GST/HST New Housing provides all of the details on this rebate.
