Ontarians see home ownership as part of the 'Canadian Dream'
BREB
Home ownership is part of the 'Canadian Dream' say 90 per cent of Ontarians, but a Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT), like the one imposed in Toronto, would stand in the way of this dream for seven in ten Ontarians if it were imposed in their municipality, according to new research from the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA). In light of the unfolding provincial election, Ontario Realtors are raising awareness around the MLTT's restrictions on home ownership and its negative economic impacts to ensure it does not spread to municipalities outside of Toronto.

Click on the dotted line: Real estate agents test cyber boundaries
The Globe and Mail

Electronic signatures, or e-signatures, are now accepted for a wide variety of purposes in Canada and are legally enforceable. But buying a home is an exception in some provinces and territories, including Ontario, where the legal framework says you still need a so-called "wet" signature. You cannot legally seal the deal online or by e-mail.

First of all, years ago lenders would not lend to a woman even if she was a career woman with good credit. They were required to have a male guarantor. Even credit cards were hard to come by for a single woman.
