The Bank of Canada will be raising interest rates on variable-rate mortgages by 0.5%. What this means is that your monthly payments will increase by $26 per $100,000 on your mortgage if you are on a variable rate mortgage. Here is the Bank of Canada statement.
This comes as no surprise as Canadian inflation has been at historic highs as of late. Fixed rates have been rising more rapidly than prime rates over the past few weeks, meaning that qualifying rates have increased, as well as reduced the overall access to mortgage funds as rates return to pre-pandemic levels.
The very best planning advice we can give you is to make your mortgage payment today as if it were a fixed rate, this will avoid potential future payment shock and help you pay your mortgage off faster.
