Brandon Homebuyer Assistance Program

The City of Brandon is pleased to offer the Brandon Homebuyer Assistance Program thanks to funding support from Manitoba Housing. The program will assist renters who are eligible to transition to homeownership, by providing funding equal to a 5% down payment and a portion of the associated closing costs by way of a forgivable loan. The maximum forgivable loan is $14,000, with forgiveness earned over a ten-year period. 

Deadline for applications is June 15th, 2018 at 4 pm.

Based on interest in supporting the Homebuyer Assistance Program from lending institutions, the City of Brandon met with local Credit Unions (CU) to discuss the mortgage preapproval process.


All Credit unions require information from applicants to complete the mortgage preapproval process. When you schedule an appointment to discuss a mortgage preapproval, please ask what documents you will be required to bring with you to the appointment.


Commonly requested items include:

  • Confirmation of your income and/or employment earnings (several most current pay stubs, one or two years tax assessment notices, letter of employment, T1 General, list of other income)
  • Name and address of employers for last 3 years
  • Your banking information (if at a different bank)
  • Proof that you have a down payment or a plan to get the downpayment
  • An assets and liabilities list
  • Estimates for your monthly housing expenses, including utilities, property taxes and other fees, utility statements are good
  • Your lawyer’s or notary’s contact information (if known)
