The Canadian government’s Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP) lets you borrow money from your RRSP if:

1. you're a first-time homebuyer; or
2. you’ve lived separately and apart from your spouse or common-law partner for at least 90 days and started living separately and apart anytime in the preceding 4 years as a result of a relationship breakdown (conditions apply).

If you’re looking to buy, build or maintain your primary residence, you can use this money for your down payment, closing costs, or both.

You can withdraw up to $35,000 from your RRSP per calendar year. Spouses or partners may also each withdraw up to $35,000 per calendar year — $70,000 in total. The borrowed funds must be in your RRSP for at least 90 days before taken out. Withdraw the money no later than 30 days after the closing date.

You can borrow money from your RRSP tax-free if you pay it back to your RRSP starting no later than the second year after the withdrawal date. Pay back the full amount within 15 years, through regular payments. Every year, the government sends you a statement summarizing what you repaid and what's outstanding.

What does this mean for those of you thinking of selling your home this year?

In a seller's market, there's a shortage of inventory and more potential buyers than homes available. That means there is the potential for more buyers to be bidding on the same property resulting in multiple buyer situations and bidding wars... Meaning you could walk away with more than what you originally were asking for.

Sometimes it's not the easiest to qualify for a mortgage on your own because of tougher qualification rules and higher-priced homes.
 
It still may not be enough to qualify even with a great job, a good income, a large down payment, and amazing credit.
When lenders punch the numbers, the calculations may say that too much of your income will be needed for core homeownership costs like your mortgage payment, the property taxes, heating & electrical bills, and condo maintenance fees (if applicable).
 
To put it simply, this means that your debt service ratios are too high and you will need extra help to qualify. But don't worry, you do have options!
 
A co-signer can take place in two ways:
 
1. They become a co-borrower meaning they buy the home alongside the primary applicant, their credit history and income are added to the application, they're placed on the title of the home, and are considered equally responsible for the debt.
 
2. They become a guarantor meaning they're backing the loan and promising you’ll pay it back on time but are responsible for the loan if the primary applicant can't repay the debt.

Saving energy saves you money! Buildings, including our homes, account for 18% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions. The government wants to help Canadians make where they live more energy-efficient. This means homes will be more comfortable and more affordable to maintain while also supporting our environmental objectives. ⁠

The Canada Greener Homes Grant will help homeowners make their homes more energy-efficient, create new jobs across Canada for energy advisors, grow our domestic green supply chains, and fight climate change.⁠

Participants are eligible for up to $5,600 total under the initiative. Updates will be provided over the life of the initiative to keep homeowners informed. As part of our work, we are committed to ensuring Greener Homes reaches diverse Canadians including those living in remote and northern communities and those with limited internet access. ⁠

Currently, work is being done on building a diverse network of energy advisors to provide career opportunities to all Canadians and to meet the need of our communities.⁠
