Ontario Real Estate Reforms To Target 'Property Scalpers,' Sousa Hints
Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Ontario's Minister of Finance Charles Sousa and Mayor John Tory sat down for a much-anticipated meeting to discuss the housing crisis in Toronto this afternoon.
He also said at the time that "there wasn't any evidence that there was a huge problem... with respect to foreign buyers somehow artificially inflating the housing market in Toronto".
The lack of data is of particular concern, Tory said, because it's clear that there's some speculation going on in the market but lawmakers are "flying blind" when it comes to knowing the real picture. Royal LePage's latest House Price Survey released Wednesday shows home values for the region declined on a quarterly basis for the first time since 2013.
Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa has said he's concerned about speculators "playing the market" and therefore limiting supply.
"We think it will have an impact on reducing speculative behaviour because we're saying that we're serious", he said.
Mr. Morneau said the federal government will share its relevant data on housing markets with other levels of government.
