Closing costs for buyers wanting to purchase a home can be around an extra 2-2.5 % of the purchase price of the home. This consists of Legal Fees and Disbursements and is on top of their required minimum 5% downpayment.
The largest amount is paid to the province to register the property transfer. Considering a $300,000 home totals over $3500 in just the land transfer tax and doesn't include the other required expenses.
I have attached the link for more information and to help reduce this fee by emailing the MLA.
