CMHC Premiums Going Up May 1st, 2014

February 28, 2014

Effective May 1st, 2014, CMHC mortgage loan insurance premiums will be increasing. This change will affect:

  • Owner-occupied homeowner;
  • Self-employed homeowner; and
  • 1 to 4 unit rental properties.

How much will this affect you? On average, the increased premiums will equate to an approximate $5 increase in monthly mortgage payments - so not very much at all. The premium increases are also not expected to have any material impact on the Canadian housing market.

If you'd prefer to save the extra $5 per month, get your mortgage application in before May 1st, 2014 with one of my Preferred Mortgage Specialists. Call or email today.
