The federal government announced a measure to prohibit non-Canadians from purchasing residential property in Canada for 2 years in Budget 2022. The legislation known as the Prohibition on the Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Canadians Act was passed on June 23, 2022. This law will come into effect on January 1, 2023, for a period of two years ending on December 31, 2025.

Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 5% is payable in Manitoba on the construction or purchase of a newly constructed home.  You may be able to recover some of the GST paid through the federal government’s New Housing Rebate (NHR). You may be eligible for an exemption from paying this tax if you meet certain conditions if this home is your primary residence. Conversely, if you plan to rent out the newly built home, then you may be able to claim the GST as a legitimate business expense. As well as applying to the CRA for the second type of rebate designed for real estate investors, the New Residential Rental Property Rebate (NRRPR).

Retail Sales Tax (RST) of 7% is collected in Manitoba by your solicitor on the amount of your default (high ratio) mortgage insurance. An insured mortgage is qualified as such when your down payment is less than 20%. Therefore, you will need to purchase default (high ratio) insurance. Although this insurance is added to your mortgage, the taxes (PST) on purchasing this insurance are not. Your solicitor will collect and remit the PST on behalf of the default (high ratio) insurer (CMHC, Sagen, or Canada Guaranty) upon closing. Temporarily postponed as part of COVID-19 measures.
