Mortgage Loan Insurance

Mortgages with less than 20% down are required to have mortgage loan insurance added. This insurance protects the lender in case the borrower defaults on the loan. On the plus side, there is a CMHC Green Home Refund that can refund up to 25% of the mortgage loan insurance amount.

CMHC Green Home Mortgage Loan Refund

A mortgage loan insurance refund of 15% or 25% is available to customers who buy a new, energy efficient home and have their mortgage insured with CMHC. Our attached garage homes, detached garage homes, duplexes and townhomes are eligible for a 15% refund on the CMHC mortgage loan insurance because of the energy efficient features we include*. If you choose to boost the energy efficiency of your Landmark home or make it Net Zero, the refund would be 25% of your mortgage loan insurance.

Here’s an example of what you could save:

$400,000 home

Government of Canada New Home Buyer Programs





Home Buyers' Plan

Buying a home can be an expensive proposition, especially when it’s your first one. Using the Government of Canada’s Home Buyers’ Plan may help you come up with the extra funds that could make the difference in your purchase. If you’re a first time home buyer, or building a home for a related person with a disability, you can withdraw up to $25,000 from your registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) to use as a down payment for your home. You have up to 15 years to pay back the funds to your RRSP(s). Visit the Government of Canada’s website for more information.

GST New Housing Rebate

If your new home is priced under $350,000, you may be eligible to recover some of the goods and services tax (GST). A 36% GST rebate of up to $6,300 is available for homes priced under $350,000. There is a partial rebate for homes priced between $350,000 and $450,000. Visit the Government of Canada’s website for more information.

First Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit

If you’re a first time home buyer, or have not owned a home for four years before buying a home, you may be eligible for a $5,000 income tax credit. Visit the Government of Canada’s website for more information.
