How can I buy a house with no down payment in Canada?

Rounding it up

  • Down payments are a good gauge as to whether you can afford a home or not.

  • It’s possible to get a zero down payment mortgage in Canada, but it involves borrowing the down payment, which can be financially dangerous.

  • That’s because by opting for a zero down payment mortgage, you’ll have no home equity cushion.

  • Plus, you’ll be subject to high mortgage insurance payments on a far larger debt.
