In 2006, the Town of Stanstead adopted a Welcome Policy to encourage people to settle on the town’s territory.
The Town remits a $ 1 000 check to all first-time homeowners (homes that are either purchased or newly built) in Stanstead. The Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog, Stanstead Services Centre is also offering a $ 500 check if a mortgage is signed with them.
Your new house must be your main residence.
You must provide your driver’s permit as a proof of permanent residency.
You or your spouse must be a first time owner in Stanstead.
You must file a contribution request with the Town of Stanstead within six months of the purchase contract signature or within six months of moving in to your new house.
To obtain the Caisse contribution, you must have a mortgage with Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog.
In order to show its support for families, the Town also offers $100 for each newborn or adopted child in Stanstead. The Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog, Stanstead Services Centre does the same if the parents open a bank account under their child’s name.
