New To Canada

Mortgages for People New to Canada

If you are new to Canada and you’re ready to buy a home, we can help get the right mortgage to finance your home purchase. New to Canada mortgages are available to borrowers with a permanent and non-permanent residence status.

The type of mortgage you will qualify for, and what documentation you’ll need to provide, will depend on:

  • your resident status,
  • your credit rating and history, and
  • how much your down payment is.

Basically, if you have permanent resident status and a strong credit rating, you may be able to qualify for a typical mortgage. Banks will consider a variety of ways to help establish creditworthiness including 12 months utility bills or a credit report or bank letter of reference from your country of origin.

If you do not have a well-established credit history in Canada but you meet other eligibility requirements you may still be able to obtain a mortgage through various private lenders that offer special mortgage programs designed for newcomers. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) also offers financing programs for borrowers with permanent and non-permanent residence status.
