We’re Tarion and we’re here to help.
In Ontario, most newly built homes come with a warranty that’s provided by the builder and supported by Tarion, an independent, not-for-profit organization established by the provincial government. At Tarion, we believe that every new home buyer deserves the peace of mind that they’re getting the home they were promised. Our role is to ensure that Ontario’s new home buyers receive the coverage they’re entitled to under their builder’s warranty.
Ready to buy a newly built home?
Your home is one of life’s biggest purchases. Ontario’s new home warranty program protects you as a consumer, but getting the well-built home you expect is a shared responsibility.
Before you buy, protect your new home purchase – and your peace of mind with these steps:
Only work with a licensed builder
Check the Ontario Builder Directory
to make sure your builder is licensed. If you don't see your builder's name listed, consider a different builder.
Check your deposit protection
The protection on your deposit varies based on the type and price of the home that you’re buying.
Review the fine print with a lawyer
Your purchase agreement includes all the details of what’s included in your home, including any upgrades - plus information about how the sale may be delayed or terminated.
