Tarion Warranty Corporation is now offering information about Ontario’s statutory new home warranty in Tagalog.
Peaches Madarang, owner of Toronto’s Thinc10 Inc., says the value of Tarion’s Tagalog initiative is twofold. “This service not only helps professionals educate and protect Filipino-Canadian consumers, it also personalizes and enriches the experience of buying a new home for consumers whose first language is Tagalog.”
Two publications – the warranty brochure and an educational video – are currently available on Tarion.com. This is the first new language to be launched in 2017, as part of a growing collection of multilingual resources, says Tarion.
“We know that buying a new home can be complicated. There are many steps to complete before, during and after the new home buying process,” says Siloni Waraich, vice president of stakeholder engagement for Tarion.
Tarion is partnering with the Filipino Canadian Real Estate Association (FILCREA) to launch the materials and make them widely available to Ontario’s Tagalog-speaking community.
Monica Vera, a sales rep with Century 21 Atria Realty in Richmond Hill, Ont. says, “The information provided by Tarion helps outline exactly what new home buyers can expect. This is another way we continue to serve all our clients with integrity and professionalism.”
Tarion has already released homeowner resources in Punjabi, Mandarin, French and Farsi.
