Land transfer tax rates in Manitoba1

Content last updated: June 9, 2020

As with most of Canada's provinces, Manitoba charges a land transfer tax on all property transactions (the only provinces that don't charge a land transfer tax are Alberta and Saskatchewan). There's also a $70 registration fee payable on all transactions. This tax is due at the time of purchase and will need to be paid in cash. As a result, Manitoba land transfer taxes are often one of the largest closing costs homebuyers need to pay.
