For many Canadians, buying their first home is the single, largest purchase they will ever make. CMHC’s First-Time Homebuyers Survey provides valuable information about this group with insights into their buying behaviours and preferences.

In April 2015, CMHC completed an online survey of 788 First-Time Buyers from across Canada. All respondents had undertaken a mortgage transaction in the past 12 months and all were one of the prime decision-makers within their household for matters relating to housing finance and mortgages.
