Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dropped by Cardinal Vreek Village in Orléans on Wednesday to visit with some residents and take a tour of the new sub-division with Tamarack Homes director of planning and development Michelle Taggart.

Trudeau was in the area to promote his government's new First-Time Home Buyer Incentive plan which was part of this week's federal budget announcement.

The First-Time Home Buyer Incentive will make home ownership more affordable for first-time buyers by helping them to lower their monthly mortgage payments.

Under the plan, eligible first-time home buyers could share a part of the cost of buying a home with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). For eligible buyers, the program would reduce the size of their insured mortgage and lower monthly mortgage payments.

Through the new Incentive, the CMHC would provide 5 per cent of the value of a home for a first-time homebuyer with a household income under $120,000..

“Over these past few years we heard from Canadians who talked about their concerns about being able to own their own home," the Prime Minister said. "We believe in investing in people and communities, which is why we are taking real, concrete steps to make sure homeownership remains an achievable dream, not a privilege afforded to only the richest few.”

During his visit Trudeau met Véronique and Nicolas Laporte from J.A. Laporte Flowers and Nursery and he was taken on a tour of the Cardinal Creek Village Development by Michelle Taggart, director of planning and development for Tamarack Homes.
