Programs for First Time Home Buyers

Each person who is a first time buyer (or has not owned a home in 5 years) can use up to $20,000 from their RRSP and use it as downpayment. The funds are required to be repaid in instalments over 15 years. Any year not repaid you will face an income tax liability. Poor credit is not an issue with the plan itself, just what lender will facilitate a deal for you, and at what rate and downpayment loan to value.
