This calculator calculates GST at 7% of a new home's purchase price minus a GST rebate. GST rebates are calculated as follows. For homes under $350,000, the rebate amounts to 36% of GST, up to a maximum rebate of $8,750. For homes between $350,000 and $450,000, the maximum rebate of $8750 declines to zero on a proportional basis. All homes selling for more than $450,000 receive no GST rebate.
Mortgage Loan Insurance Premium (Non-Refundable)
Mortgage insurance makes it possible for homebuyers to purchase a home using a lower down payment. The Canadian Bank Act prohibits most federally regulated lending institutions from providing mortgages without mortgage loan insurance for amounts that exceed 75% of the value of the home or purchases with less than 25% down payment. The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and Genworth Financial both offer Mortgage Loan insurance.
