Subsidies and tax credits in Quebec for condo purchases


Purchasing a condo in Quebec can be greatly facilitated by a series of subsidies and tax credits aimed at first-time buyers and those looking to invest wisely. These financial measures are designed to make homeownership more affordable and appealing.

First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit (HBTC)

This program offers a significant advantage to first-time buyers with a tax credit of up to $1,500, an amount recently increased in the 2022 budget. This credit eases the acquisition of your first property by reducing some of the initial tax burdens.

FHSA Program

The First Home Savings Account allows contributions of up to $8,000 per year, with a lifetime maximum of $40,000. This program is ideal for those planning medium to long-term, providing a flexible and tax-advantaged savings mechanism.

CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance

For buyers with less than a 20% down payment, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) mortgage loan insurance reduces the risk for lenders, making homeownership more accessible. Additionally, with only a 5% down payment required, it’s an attractive option for those without substantial initial capital.

Residents of Montreal can benefit from a specific program that offers variable assistance based on household size and composition. Grants can go up to $15,000, in addition to covering 100% of land transfer taxes, significantly reducing the initial costs of the purchase.

These programs represent just a portion of the many opportunities available to property buyers in Quebec. By taking advantage of these subsidies and tax credits, buyers can not only lower the costs associated with purchasing a condo but also invest more strategically and economically. These incentives provide an invaluable opportunity to maximize your purchase while benefiting from attractive financial facilities.
