Renting Your First Home in Canada What Newcomers Need to Know

If you are new to Canada, one of the first things you will probably need to do is find a place you and your family can call home. For most newcomers, your first home will likely be a rented house or apartment. Renting a home should provide you a safe place where you can begin to adjust to your new life in Canada. It can also give you the time to look for a home to buy without feeling pressured into making a quick decision. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has developed a Guide to help make it easier for you to find and rent a home or apartment in Canada. As Canada’s national housing agency, CMHC has been helping Canadians, including new Canadians, gain access to a wide choice of quality, affordable homes for more than 60 years.

This Guide will explain:

  • Types of rental housing
  • Tenants and landlords duties and responsibilities
  • Where and how to look
  • Questions to ask
  • Finding a Realtor
  • signing a lease......And so many more topics that will help answer your questions and help you through the whole process.
