A new 2-year ban of no foreign buying that includes condos, apartments, and single residential units. (Exempt are recreational units.)
Loopholes? As always there are a few: The ban does not apply to foreign students, permanent residents, foreign workers, or foreigners who are purchasing their primary residence in Canada. Also, recreational properties are exempt.
With commodity prices cooling we continue to expect a lower Canadian dollar
- "Budget 2022 proposes to make all assignment sales of newly constructed or substantially renovated residential housing taxable for GST/HST purposes, effective May 7, 2022."
- Starting May 7, the government will add taxes on home flippers who buy properties to renovate and put them back on the market less than 12 months later. Who will want to renovate now? Loopholes: Looks like multiple exceptions again for permanent residents, foreign students, etc.
