Anti-flipping & Ban Foreign Investment 

Houses should be homes for Canadians to live in.

  • To ensure profits from flipping properties are taxed fully and fairly, Budget 2022 proposes to introduce new rules so that any person who sells a property they have held for less than 12 months would be subject to full taxation on their profits as business income, applying to residential properties sold on or after January 1, 2023. Exemptions would apply for Canadians who sell their home due to certain life circumstances, such as a death, disability, the birth of a child, a new job, or a divorce.
  • To make sure that housing is owned by Canadians instead of foreign investors, Budget 2022 announces the government’s intention to propose restrictions that would prohibit foreign commercial enterprises and people who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents from acquiring non-recreational, residential property in Canada for a period of two years.


We are putting Canada on a path to double housing construction over the next decade. Building more housing will require investments, but it will also require changes to the systems that are preventing more housing from being built.

  • Budget 2022 proposes to provide $4 billion over five years, starting in 2022-23, to launch a new Housing Accelerator Fund that is flexible to the needs and realities of cities and communities, while providing them support such as an annual per-door incentive or up-front funding for investments in municipal housing planning and delivery processes that will speed up housing development.
  • To ensure that more affordable housing can be built quickly, Budget 2022 proposes to provide $1.5 billion over two years, starting in 2022-23, to extend the Rapid Housing Initiative. This new funding is expected to create at least 6,000 new affordable housing units, with at least 25 per cent of funding going towards women-focused housing projects.
  • Budget 2022 proposes to introduce a Multigenerational Home Renovation Tax Credit, which would provide up to $7,500 in support for constructing a secondary suite for a senior or an adult with a disability, starting in 2023.


  • Budget 2022 proposes to introduce the Tax-Free First Home Savings Account that would give prospective first-time home buyers the ability to save up to $40,000. Like an RRSP, contributions would be tax-deductible, and withdrawals to purchase a first home—including investment income—would be non-taxable, like a TFSA. Tax-free in, tax-free out.
  • Budget 2022 proposes to double the First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit amount to $10,000, providing up to $1,500 in direct support to home buyers, applying to homes purchased on or after January 1, 2022.
  • Budget 2022 proposes to double the qualifying expense limit of the Home Accessibility Tax Credit to $20,000 for the 2022 and subsequent tax years. This will mean a tax credit of up to $3,000—an increase from the previous tax credit of up to $1,500—for important accessibility renovations or alterations.

今天联邦预算正式出台,针对住房负担能力,联邦政府将其定为“加拿大有史以来最雄心勃勃的计划”来解决住房危机,并将在未来五年内花费近 100 亿加元用于整体的住房一揽子计划。



2022 年预算中的其他住房计划包括:

1)$40亿用于启动一个新的“住房加速基金”,以简化市政当局的分区和许可系统,以加快住宅物业的建设。通过这一点,政府的目标是在未来五年内新建 100,000 套新住房;

2)15 亿用于扩大快速住房计划,创造至少 6,000 套新的经济适用房;

3)15 亿的贷款和资金用于从其他举措中重新分配的合作公寓;

4)7.5 亿用于为首次购房者推出免税储蓄账户,这将使首次购房者为他们的第一套住房节省高达 $40,000 。为了缩短支付首付所需的时间,首次购房者将能够免税提取这笔钱用于他们的首次购房。

自由党还瞄准了家庭炒房者,引入了新规则,从 2023 年 1 月起,如果任何人出售他们持有不到 12 个月的房产,将被视为炒房,并对其作为企业的利润全额征税收入。例外情况适用于“某些生活情况”,如死亡、孩子的出生或离婚。
