New to Canada?
You’ve made Canada your new home and are in the process of searching for a place of your own. Looking for a home can be a very exciting experience that can be both rewarding and challenging.
As Canada’s national housing agency, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has been providing Canadians—including new Canadians—with information and tools to help you make informed homeownership decisions.
Canada’s population growth is becoming increasingly reliant upon immigration. In the 2006 Census, close to six million Canadians identified themselves as immigrants, representing about 20 per cent of the entire Canadian population.
To help new Canadians make informed housing-related decisions and find safe, affordable homes for their families, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation has developed a multi-language, one-stop, online source for housing-related information.
