Exemption given to Permanent Residents and International Students from two-year ban of Foreign Buyer

Canada has planned a two-year ban on the investors regarding purchasing a house in the country. But permanent residents and international students will be exempted from this ban. Chrystia Freeland has revealed the strategy of Ottawa. The finance minister said that house prices will keep rising high so that working-class people and young Canadians can be kept out of this real estate market.

Freeland said that a fairer strategy will be made for the Canadians. The finance minister added that foreign investors will be prevented from purchasing a house in Canada. The houses will be made available for the Canadian families.

Number of homes will be doubled in Ottawa

Ottawa has plans to double the number of houses, and this will be done with the help of territorial and provincial governments along with municipalities, private sectors, and non-profit sectors. It has been announced that investment will be done to make more homes which will help in reducing the barriers of building these homes.

Investment will also be made in the rental housing so that young people can get such homes easily. As foreign investors will not be allowed, so Ottawa is seeing this as the increase in inflation of the housing market.
