Finding mortgage self-employed in Ontario can be challenge. Most traditional loan applications require proof of income, and often, mortgage loans are awarded based in part on how much of your income is free from other bills and debts, to make payments. This can be a challenge if you are one of the approximately 15% of all Canadian workers who are self-employed.
As a self-employed worker, you may not have the ability to show an average amount of pay over the past several months. It could be that your work is mostly seasonal, and you live off of your savings during the leaner months; it could be that the salary you draw from your company is small, but you don’t have many bills. Whatever your situation, if you can’t show that you have an adequate amount of steady income, most banks won’t be interested in giving you a mortgage, due to the perceived higher risk of default.
