Rental Construction Financing

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has $2.5 billion available in lower cost loans to finance housing development and encourage the construction of new rental housing across Canada.

Do you have a rental housing project that is affordable, accessible and energy efficient?

CMHC is looking to fund the construction of more than 10,000 new rental housing units in Canada.


The loans can offer you:

  • a 10-year term (fixed or hybrid) for certainty during the most risky periods of development
  • up to a 50-year amortization period for smaller monthly payments and long-term viability
  • CMHC mortgage loan insurance from the outset with the premium fully paid at no additional cost to you
  • up to 100% loan to cost for residential space and up to 75% loan to cost for non-residential space
  • interest payments only during the construction and rent-up phase — principal payments begin after 1 year of stable operating income

This is your chance to contribute to vibrant, socially inclusive communities in Canada!
