First Time Buyers alert!

Assistance for First-Time Homebuyers

The budget also increases much-needed incentives for first-time homebuyers, through a new Tax-Free First Home Savings Account. Beginning in 2023, it will give prospective first-time homebuyers the ability to contribute up to $40,000. Like a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), contributions would be tax-deductible, while withdrawals to purchase a first home would be non-taxable, like a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). In addition, the First Time Home Buyers' Tax Credit will be doubled to $10,000, retroactive to homes purchased on or after January 1, 2022.
