CMHC updates 20-year-old homebuying guide

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation published its guide to buying a home in Canada back in 1998.

A lot has changed since then; Celine Dion no longer dominates the music charts and the average price of a Canadian home is some way north of the $100,000 it was.

So, the CMHC has updated that near-20-year-old guide which provides a step-by-step process for buyers. It will appear on the agency’s website Tuesday.
