New housing measures expected in upcoming federal budget by Barrie Mortgage Broker Vince Savoia

Updated: Apr 6

As your trusted mortgage broker, I’m always looking for developments that can impact your homeownership journey. This month brings some hopeful news on the housing front that we're eager to share with you.


Federal Budget & Housing Investments

The Government of Canada is set to unveil its federal budget on April 16th, and early indications from Housing Minister Sean Fraser are incredibly promising for anyone looking to buy a home or struggling with housing affordability. The budget is expected to allocate billions of dollars toward constructing new homes and supporting low-cost housing programs.


This commitment to substantial investments in housing comes at a crucial time. Canada's housing affordability crisis has been exacerbated by a rapidly increasing population and economic pressures like high inflation and interest rates — the highest in 22 years. These factors have made it more challenging for many Canadians to find affordable homes or keep up with rent and mortgage costs.


What This Means for You

The upcoming investments aim to ease these pressures by increasing the supply of homes and making housing more accessible to everyone. This includes significant support for constructing new homes and enhancing low-cost housing programs. According to Minister Fraser, we're talking about an investment that could reach the tens of billions of dollars.


Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland is expected to present the budget in Parliament on April 16th, revealing the full extent of these plans.


Looking Ahead

It's important to note that while these investments are a step in the right direction, the impact won't be immediate. Canada must build 315,000 new residences annually through 2030 to keep pace with population growth — a challenging but necessary target to ensure a future where everyone can afford a place to call home.
