Building a home is a significant undertaking, and we understand the inherent stress and anxiety that can come with it. Our mission is to replace those worries with confidence and excitement. From the moment you decide to build with us, we are committed to making the entire process smooth and enjoyable. How do we do it? Let’s find out!



  1. Established and Reputable

Activa has been investing in the Region for over 35 years, so it’s no surprise that we’re Waterloo Region’s largest and most active land developer and home builder. Our stress-free process, paired with our high building standards, creates the ideal foundation for your dream home.


2. Your Home Buying Journey

During your homebuying journey, we want you to feel confident every step of the way. After you’ve met with our sales team and selected your lot/unit and your home,  we offer a minimum 10-Day Conditional Period. This gives you time to review everything, consult with professionals, and ask us any questions you might have. If you decide it’s not the right fit during this period, you can walk away without any hassle. It’s all about making sure you’re happy with your decision—no pressure!

We also believe in complete transparency – we don’t hide any costs; we lay everything out upfront. Our closing costs are what you would typically expect to see on any new home purchase. Everything else – including utility meters or connections – has been included in the price of your new home, so that you can spend your money on more important things, like making your house a home.

3. A Dedicated Customer Experience Team

We know that your home is not just a financial investment – it’s a personal and emotional one too. That’s why we have developed an easy, streamlined, and stress-free process so that your home buying experience is second-to-none. A dedicated Customer Experience Coordinator will be assigned to support you every step of the way, keeping you informed and providing you with the best in quality, service, and satisfaction. You’ll have the chance to see your home at pre-drywall and prior to closing – but don’t worry, we’re still here after moving day to help you during your extensive warranty period and answer any questions you may have.


4. Award-winning Design Studio

Our in-house, talented design team will help you create a home that suits your lifestyle and truly reflects your unique taste and personality. The best part is that our award-winning Design Studio is conveniently located in Waterloo Region, meaning that you won’t have to drive far. Look forward to the day where you get to choose flooring, tiles, countertops, wall colours, and everything in between. No further deposits are required for Design Studio selections.*

5. Our Homes are Built to Higher Standards

We’re committed to sustainability and energy-efficient building practices; all of our Single Detached Homes come Net Zero Ready as standard, boasting exceptional features that enhance the comfort and livability of your home. As a bonus, with Net Zero Ready, your basement becomes a true family space, with higher basement ceilings, large egress windows for light, and under-slab insulation for warmth. Plus, our homes have been redesigned to meet the current desires of our homeowners – extra space between you and your neighbour’s home, luxury ensuites included as standard in many of our home designs, and secondary suite options for rental or multi-generational needs. Feel confident that any structural upgrades you add are reasonably priced!
