Genworth’s New to Canada program helps new Canadians purchase their first home sooner, making it easier for these families to become economically established in Canada.
This program provides up to 95% loan-to-value ratio (LTV) for qualified homebuyers. The LTV indicates how much of the property is being financed, so this high LTV is ideal for first time buyers who may not have the necessary funds to pay a lot upfront for their new home.
