Municipal financial assistance programs

A boost that will give you a head start

Have you found a home you like, but are still hesitant to buy? Are you concerned about buyer’s fees or unexpected renovation costs? The Ville de Montréal can help you make your dream come true worry-free with its financial assistance programs for homeowners. Reimbursement of the real estate transfer tax, a lump sum upon purchase of your home, financial assistance for renovations or the stabilization of foundations – the city can help and reassure you in so many ways.

When buying a home, financial assistance can make all the difference. Montréal’s financial assistance programs give you a leg up to seal the deal.



Assistance for new homeowners

How would you like have the transfer tax reimbursed? Or receive a lump sum for buying a home? In all, the amount of financial aid could reach $10,000 for families (lump sum of up to $6,250 plus a refund of the property transfer tax).

Good to know : First-time buyers, as well as families who already own a home are eligible for this financial aid program. Are you a family looking into acquiring an existing property? You could benefit from both a subsidy for the purchase, and easier access to our renovation programs.
