Land Transfer Taxes (LTT) are provincial taxes levied on the exchange of real estate, and are the responsibility of the purchaser. Usually the LTT is a percentage of the property value.  All provinces have a land transfer tax except Alberta and Saskatchewan (who instead levy a much smaller fee). Note that Ontario, Toronto, B.C. and PEI there are LTT rebates for first time homeowners. Also, keep in mind that Toronto is an exception as it charges an additional municipal tax (see Toronto section for additional information).

New Brunswick

In New Brunswick, the land transfer tax is 0.25% of the assessed value of the property.  For example, if the assessed value of the property is $100,000 the tax payable is $250.
