BUYER INFO


Purchasing property in Canada is very easy.


If you stay for less than 6 months out of the year, you’re considered a non-resident by the government, but are still able to open bank accounts and buy property. If you stay longer than 6 months, you will need to apply for immigrant status.


Certain provinces have restrictions on foreign land ownership. In Manitoba, non-residents are prevented from owning farmland unless they actually plan to move there within 2 years. Non-residents may not own land over 10 acres in size in Saskatchewan, whilst in Alberta they may only own up to 2 plots of land not exceeding 20 acres in total.


Once you have chosen a REALTOR®, they will outline the buying and/or selling process. Below are some resources to assist you in purchasing a new home.
