Home Buyers Plan

The federal Home Buyers’ Program (HBP) lets first-time home buyers withdraw up to $25,000 each (or $50,000 for a couple) tax-free from their RRSPs. And they will have to pay those funds back, of course, on a repayment plan.

The Home Buyers' Plan (HBP) for Disable Relative

It is a program that allows you to withdraw funds from your registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) to buy or build a qualifying home for a related person with a disability.  You can withdraw up to $25,000 in a calendar year.

Your RRSP contributions must remain in the RRSP for at least 90 days before you can withdraw them under the HBP, or they may not be deductible for any year. Generally, you have to repay all withdrawals to your RRSPs within a period of no more than 15 years. You will have to repay an amount to your RRSPs each year until your HBP balance is zero. If you do not repay the amount due for a year, it will have to be included in your income for that year. For more info visit http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/lifeevents/buying_a_home.shtml

Gifted Down payment program

A financial gift from a parent or blood relative can be used as a down payment. You’ll need to document in writing that the funds are a gift and that you are not required to pay the money back at any time. For more info visit http://www.cmhc-schl.gc.ca/en/co/moloin/moloin_003.cfm

Trade in

Sometimes the builders can offer you some trade in incentives in exchange for your down payment. For example, got a beater car worth at least $5,400? You can trade that in as a down payment on a brand-new Vancouver condo. That’s the pitch by in GasTown, a new 61-unit condo development at 150 East Cordova, which launched an innovative program banking on condo buyers’ willingness to go car-free in exchange for home ownership in Vancouver’s sky-high real estate market.

Loan from Parents

A parent or grandparent could also provide a loan with a modest interest rate and reasonable expectations for loan repayment. Or you could look at borrowing the down payment through a loan or unsecured line of credit.  Check with your local credit union.

Cash-back down payment mortgage


In many provinces, lenders that aren’t federally regulated (like credit unions) can still offer cash-back down payment mortgages. The few that actually do will give you 5 per cent cash to use for your down payment. You then need to cough up only your closing costs, which include legal and inspection fees, land transfer tax and so on.
