Ontarians say the foreign speculation tax on housing was a good idea

A large majority of Ontarians, 81%, support the introduction of a 15% Non-Resident Speculation Tax (NRST) on home purchasers who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents, shows new research conducted by Ipsos and commissioned by the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA), Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) and Federation of Rental-Housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO). Full study results are being released today at the Housing Summit, an initiative born of the three associations’ collective interest in keeping home affordability, consumer choice and housing supply a priority for political Parties in the 2018 election.

Sean Simpson of Ipsos Public Affairs will reveal Ontarians’ sentiment on a variety of housing related issues, including their impressions of the Fair Housing Plan and the importance of home affordability as an issue in the 2018 election. A fireside chat with Finance Minister Charles Sousa, and moderated by Steve Paikin, host of TVO’s The Agenda, will take place over the noon hour. Academia, economists, housing industry leaders, MPPs and senior government officials will take part in a full day of panel discussions on a range of housing topics. Click here to see a copy of the Housing Summit agenda.

As advocates for greater home supply and home affordability in the province, OREA, OHBA and FRPO have joined forces to ensure that these issues remain a priority for Party leaders and policy makers. The three associations say the solution to home affordability is increasing consumer choice and the supply of housing in the province by streamlining the building approvals process and reducing red tape, which is preventing new homes and rentals from coming to market.

“Ontario’s Realtors are committed to working with government to keep the Canadian dream of home ownership within reach for every Ontarian. The ultimate solution is to increase the supply of housing in the marketplace including reducing the regulatory hurdles and red tape that unnecessarily delay projects and drive up costs.”
-Tim Hudak, Chief Executive Officer, OREA

“As the industry that builds 95 per cent of all new housing in Ontario, home builders know that increasing supply is the key to improving affordability.”
-Joe Vaccaro, Chief Executive Officer, OHBA

"FRPO welcomes a fulsome discussion with government and all interested parties about the future of Ontario’s rental sector. This includes the need to provide a strong rental sector that meets housing needs.”

OREA Statement on Federal Government’s Refusal to Allow Provinces the Ability to Ban Home Growth of Cannabis

Ontario Realtors are disappointed the federal government rejected the Senate recommendation that would have allowed provinces to ban home growth of cannabis. Provinces should have the ability to protect home owners and communities from the problems associated with former grow ops. Quebec and Manitoba have committed to standing firm on this issue and the ambiguity in the legislation has opened the door to court challenges. We look forward to working with Premier-Designate Ford to address Realtor concerns and ensure we protect Ontario homes and families.

York region politicians want a new municipal land transfer tax grab on home ownership

York Region councillors are demanding new tax powers from the province, and they have their eyes set on the municipal land transfer tax (MLTT). If implemented, the tax would add over $15,000 to an average priced York Region home, impacting housing affordability for all home buyers and making the Canadian dream of home ownership less achievable for thousands of young buyers. This could set a dangerous precedent for housing affordability across the wider Greater Toronto Area and the rest of the province.
