Breaking News:

It has been announced today CMHC has decided to raise their mortgage insurance premiums.

Here are the 4 main takeaways:

1. This will increase the average purchaser with less than a 20% downpayment to have an increase in payment of approx $5 dollars a month as of May 1st 2014

2. This will affect any pre approval where the mortgage itself has not funded prior to that date.

3. This will not impact any already funded mortgages.

4. Genworth & Canada Guarentee will likely follow CHMC , they have not confirmed as of yet.

Its noteworthy CMHC has not raised premiums since the late 90’s and decreased their premiums back when Genworth decided to lower theirs a decade ago.
