Federal Regulations on Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Residents
The information contained in this document is for general guidance only and is not to be construed as legal or other professional advice. It should not be used as a substitute for consultation with legal or other competent advisers. Before making any decision or taking any action, you should consult a professional. As a Registrant I take no responsibility for any errors or omissions in connection with the use of this information.
The federal government has released the supporting regulations on the Prohibition on the Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Canadians Act (Foreign Buyers Ban) which includes definitions, exceptions, and enforcement elements to help individuals understand and comply with the law.
The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) is extremely disappointed by the government's decision to move forward with this legislation and the rollout of its regulations. CREA stated that "parliamentarians that supported the introduction of this measure need to recognize it will have a detrimental impact on Canada's reputation, labour market, economy and severely hinder our ability to attract global talent". TRREB agrees with this assessment. CREA CEO Michael Bourque recently spoke at the Senate Committee on National Finance where he stated why CREA believes this piece of legislation does not address the core of Canada's housing crisis.
Amendments to the Foreign Buyer Ban
Came into force as of March 27, 2023
The federal government has announced several amendments to the regulations supporting the Prohibition on the Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Canadians Act.
The Act came into force on January 1, 2023. As a result of lobbying efforts by many, including REALTORS®, the government has announced the following amendments to expand exceptions allowing non-Canadians to purchase a residential property in certain circumstances, especially as they relate to newcomers and businesses looking to add to Canada’s housing supply.
As such, the following changes have been announced and came into force on March 27, 2023:
- Enable more work permit holders to purchase a home to live in while working in Canada.
The amendments will allow those who hold a work permit or are authorized to work in Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations to purchase residential property. Work permit holders are eligible if they have 183 days or more of validity remaining on their work permit or work authorization at time of purchase, and they have not purchased more than one residential property. The current provisions on tax filings and previous work experience in Canada are being repealed.
- Repealing existing provision so the prohibition doesn’t apply to vacant land.
Repealing section 3(2) of the regulations, so the prohibition does not apply to all lands zoned for residential and mixed use. Vacant land zoned for residential and mixed use can now be purchased by non-Canadians and used for any purpose by the purchaser, including residential development.
- Exception for development purposes.
This exception allows non-Canadians to purchase residential property for the purpose of development. The amendments also extend the exception currently applicable to publicly traded corporations under the Act, to publicly traded entities formed under the laws of Canada or a province and controlled by a non-Canadian.
- Increasing the corporation foreign control threshold from 3% to 10%.
For the purposes of the prohibition, with regards to privately held corporations or privately held entities formed under the laws of Canada or a province and controlled by a non-Canadian, the control threshold has increased from 3% to 10%. This aligns with the definition of ‘specified Canadian Corporation’ in the Underused Housing Tax Act.
What is the Prohibition on the Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Canadians Act?
On June 23, 2022, Parliament passed the Prohibition on the Purchase of Residential Property by Non-Canadians Act. Coming into force Sunday, January 1, 2023, this Act:
- Does not apply to Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
- Applies to Non-Canadians directly or indirectly purchasing residential property in Canada for a period of two years.
- Applies to residential property, including detached houses or similar buildings of one to three dwelling units, as well as parts of buildings such as semi-detached houses, condominium units, or other similar premises.
- Applies to direct or indirect purchases of residential property, including purchases made through corporations, trusts or other legal entities.
- Establishes penalties for non-compliance applicable to Non-Canadians, as well as any person or entity knowingly assisting a Non-Canadian in violating the prohibition.
The regulations broadly define the term purchase to include the direct or indirect acquisition of a right or interest in Residential Property. The regulations then specifically exclude, among other things, acquisitions of interests resulting from transitional or life events such as death, divorce, separation, or a gift.
Application of Prohibition to Non-Canadian corporations and other entities
The term Non-Canadian, as it relates to corporations and other entities, has been defined as:
- an entity not formed pursuant to the laws of Canada or one of its provinces; and
- an entity formed under Canada's laws that has direct or indirect ownership by a Non-Canadian of 3% to 10% of the value of the entity's equity or voting rights.
Toronto Vacant Home Tax in Effect January 1, 2023
The City of Toronto's Vacant Home Tax (VHT) was created to improve the supply of housing in the city. Beginning in 2023, residential properties that are unoccupied for more than six months (cumulative) in a calendar year may be subject to the new tax, unless they meet one of the exemptions.
What you Need to Know
- A declaration form will need to be completed by property owners by February 2, 2023.
- A property is considered vacant if it is not the principal residence of the owner or any permitted occupants or was not occupied by tenants for at least six months during the previous calendar year or is otherwise deemed to be vacant under the Bylaw.
- The tax is 1 per cent of the current value assessment (CVA) of the home.
- Exemptions include: principal residence, death, repairs, units undergoing major renovation, owner is in care or hospital, court order, transfer of legal ownership and occupancy for full time employment is in place.
The goal of the VHT is to increase the supply of housing by discouraging owners from leaving their residential properties unoccupied. Homeowners who choose to keep their properties vacant will be subject to this tax.
I have available to myself, Pre-Construction Inventory, for the Investor or Primary Residence Buyer.

I recently completed a successful real estate transaction with Phil Cipriani. Phil is a top notch professional that treats clients with care every step of the way. He is knowledgeable and experienced and helps you complete the transaction from start to finish with 100% total satisfaction. I highly recommend Phil for all your future real estate needs.
“I met Phil while looking to get an Investment property (a condo for rental), this was my first attempt to do it and I needed a real state agent who could guide me through the process. Phil has proved to be more than helpful in this regard, always going above and beyond, taking the time to explain the pros and cons of the properties we visited from the point of view of an investor and always willing to share his knowledge with someone less experienced in this matter such as me. Phil took a mentor role for which I’m extremely great full and thanks to his help, I was able not only to get the investment property I wanted but also increased my knowledge along the way
As a result, I highly recommend Phil due the genuine care and diligence he shows to his clients. We are now embarking on a pre-construction investment property opportunity and I cannot be happier to have his advice to guide me through the process again"
