Bank of Canada Announcement – September 2022

General Angela Calla 7 Sep

As expected, the Bank of Canada has raised its prime rate by 0.75%. What this means is that your monthly payments will increase by approx. $42 per $100,000 on your mortgage if you are on a variable rate mortgage. Here is the Bank of Canada statement. What this translates to is a prime rate held by most banks of 5.45%As always, fixed-rate mortgages are not affected by this change.

Current lock-in rates are sitting at over 5%, so many are staying with their variable-rate mortgage to keep cash flow freed up. Locking-in means an expectation for rates to go beyond 6% and to stay there for a significant amount of time. While we can’t predict when this will stop or how long this will last here is an interesting article that shows the last 30 years of cycles with interest rates.

It should be noted the Bank has indicated they are not done with hikes. A mortgage strategy for any upcoming renewal by starting early, refinancing to consolidate payments and improving cash flow will be key as we go through these changing economic times. Here is a segment we did on this for Global News.
