For many immigrants to Canada, owning a home is a very emotional thing. It is an important part of becoming a Canadian.
Owning a home in your new country is a source of pride, satisfaction, and accomplishment, not to mention an investment that can grow over time to benefit us and our families.
Research conducted on behalf of Genworth Canada shows more than 90 percent of new immigrants want to purchase a home in Canada. The same survey also shows that the majority of these immigrants say they lack information about financing options.
That’s why you need to learn about mortgages and what your choices are before you begin shopping.
