  • Some lenders allow the down payment to be borrowed from another source such as a line of credit
  • First time homebuyers can use RRSPs for the down payment
  • As much as $20,000 for an individual and $40,000 for a couple
  • If you don’t have savings, a gift from an immediate family member can be accepted as down payment T
  • he golden rule always stands, try to save 10% of your earnings. If you net $50K per year, that’s $5,000 in savings, or $96.00 from every paycheque!
