Every (home-buying) dollar counts.

Along with the closing costs involved in buying your home, there are provincial or municipal charges to think about.

There may also be support available — many (but not all) provinces offer the opportunity to get a tax credit or rebate (in addition to federal ones), depending on eligibility and home price.

First-time buyers often have the most rebates available. Check the list, then talk to a friendly True North Mortgage for your specific details.
