Ontario's New Foreign Buyer Tax & Rental Control

( Official Press Release )

Today, Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne introduced Ontario's Fair Housing Plan (16 measures) to "help more people find affordable homes, increase supply, protect buyers and renters and bring stability to the real estate market. "

The TWO most significant measures are:-

* Non-Resident Speculation Tax (NRST) of 15% for foreign buyers of residential properties in Greater Golden Horseshoe.  This is similar to British Columbia's Foreign Buyer Tax on Metro Vancouver real estate.

*Almost all Ontario rentals will be capped at 2.5% per annum.

今晨, 安省省長公布一共16招的樓市降溫措施, 目的是幫助普羅大眾可以找到能負擔的居所, 增加市場供應, 保障置業人士和租客, 並且希望穩定房屋市場。


  • 對外國買家徵收15% [非居民投機];
  • 每年租金升幅上限定為 2.5%
BNN have a short summary of the 16 measures:-
  • A 15-per-cent non-resident speculation tax to be imposed on buyers in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area who are not citizens, permanent residents or Canadian corporations.
  • Expanded rent control that will apply to all private rental units in Ontario, including those built after 1991, which are currently excluded.
  • Updates to the Residential Tenancies Act to include a standard lease agreement, tighter provisions for "landlord's own use" evictions, and technical changes to the Landlord-Tenant Board meant to make the process fairer, as well as other changes.
  • A program to leverage the value of surplus provincial land assets across the province to develop a mix of market-price housing and affordable housing.
  • Legislation that would allow Toronto and possibly other municipalities to introduce a vacant homes property tax in an effort to encourage property owners to sell unoccupied units or rent them out.
  • A plan to ensure property tax for new apartment buildings is charged at a similar rate as other residential properties.
  • A five-year, $125-million program aimed at encouraging the construction of new rental apartment buildings by rebating a portion of development charges.
  • More flexibility for municipalities when it comes to using property tax tools to encourage development.
  • The creation of a new Housing Supply Team with dedicated provincial employees to identify barriers to specific housing development projects and work with developers and municipalities to find solutions.
  • An effort to understand and tackle practices that may be contributing to tax avoidance and excessive speculation in the housing market.
  • A review of the rules real estate agents are required to follow to ensure that consumers are fairly represented in real estate transactions.
  • The launch of a housing advisory group which will meet quarterly to provide the government with ongoing advice about the state of the housing market and discuss the impact of the measures and any additional steps that are needed
  • Education for consumers on their rights, particularly on the issue of one real estate professional representing more than one party in a real estate transaction.
  • A partnership with the Canada Revenue Agency to explore more comprehensive reporting requirements so that correct federal and provincial taxes, including income and sales taxes, are paid on purchases and sales of real estate in Ontario.
  • Set timelines for elevator repairs to be established in consultation with the sector and the Technical Standards & Safety Authority.
  • Provisions that would require municipalities to consider the appropriate range of unit sizes in higher density residential buildings to accommodate a diverse range of household sizes and incomes, among other things.

可謂「夢想家居」?  相信這是因人而異, 沒有一個絕對的準則。 

每個家庭都有他們獨特要求、喜好和品味, 而他們的Dream House會因此有別他人的。 雖然如此, 大部份買家在選購房屋時, 首要條件是家居的地點, 其次就是房屋間隔和合用性。

這是間「靚屋」位於列治文山熱門Jefferson區,屬Richmond Hill High School 校區; 面積 3,400呎, 4房4厠雙車房獨立屋, 前面是Laurentian Park公園和 水塘。 步行數分鐘, 已經到達學校、商店。 而且距離央街只需3分鐘車程, 交通方便; 銀行、商場、超市、餐廳、藥房、油站...等等, 衣食住行方便非常。

房子是在Alpaca Drive上, 除了是黃金地點外, 有品味要求的屋主投資了二十多萬給建築商和設計師改良升級, 令此屋時尚舒適, 切合現代家庭生活所需。 

在眾多新穎改善裝備中,其中特別出色包括: 屋前後內裏不少門窗選用高級(商用/雙層)鋼化玻璃配不鏽鋼,現代、透光、環保;12呎樓底家庭廳設160吋 Screen Innovation 訂造專業投射銀幕, 猶如置身戲院中;裝修保暖車庫用半透明車房門、鋪設鋁質地面、度身訂造儲物櫃組,家中添加一個辦公室 / 工作間...  改良裝修之多, 數不勝數。

區內學校包括: 小學可到 Moraine Hills PS (15-16 安省2900 中排名 269), 法語 Beynon Fields PS, 天主教 St. Marguerite d’YOUVILLE  (排名 157 / 2900)。  中學選擇分別為:  Richmond Hill 中學 (740間中排名12位) 和 St. Theresa of Lisieux天主教中學 (740間中排名6位)。 有名私立的 Holy Trinity School, St. Andrew College, Academy for Gifted Children - PACE 都只是十數分鐘。
