Duration: 1 Hour

For many newcomers, owning your own home in Canada feels like you’ve finally put down roots and made Canada your home.

Whether you were a homeowner in your home country or aim to purchase a home for the first time in Canada, it’s a good idea to understand how the process works, so that you can plan for it and achieve your dream of homeownership and feel at home.

You probably have lots of questions: What types of home will best meet your needs? How do you determine which neighbourhood is right? How much do you need to save for a down payment? How do mortgages work in Canada and how soon do newcomers qualify for one if they don’t have Canadian credit history? How does a real estate agent support your home buying journey, and how does the bidding process work? Beyond the price of the home, what other costs do home wonders need to budget for?

In this webinar you’ll learn everything you need to know about buying and financing your first home in Canada.
