New to Canada Mortgage Program and Stats

Below are some interesting numbers of New to Canada residents.

We specialize in New to Canada programs as there are many in’s and out’s with the details.

Because New to Canada people do not have the standard 2 years of Canadian credit history here to buy a home, there are special programs that help them buy as soon as they have a full-time, perminant job.

The Short Version of what is needed:

  1. a full time permanent job position and either
  2. 5% down payment from your own savings if you have a foreign credit report OR
    1. 10% down from own savings if you do not have a foreign credit report

Give us a call to discuss the details of how this program may work for you!
