How will Bank of Canada’s rate cut impact you?

As you might have seen in the news, the Bank of Canada cut it’s overnight rate to 0.5% from 0.75%.  Here is what this change might mean to you.


If you currently have a fixed rate mortgage, your mortgage payments will remain unchanged.  However, if your mortgage is coming up for renewal in the next 16 months, now is the time to talk to your mortgage broker and discuss what your options are to save more of your money.

If you have a variable rate mortgage, you may see your mortgage payments reduce over the next few months.  The Variable rate is dependent on the lender’s Prime Rate.  The Prime Rate is set at the discretion of each lender and is influenced by a number of economic factors, one of which is the Overnight rate.

For those who are thinking about opening a HELOC (Home Equity line of credit) to do an upcoming renovation or to put into a college fund – the cost to borrow may come down along with the variable rate.

I want to express my gratitude for all the work that you have done for me over the last few months. I would like to say thank you for listening, understanding my needs, your patience, and promptness in getting things done. Before our meeting, I was ready to give up and walk away from everything, but you managed to calm me down and set up a plan that would work for me. It was very easy to work with you, everything was made clear and easy to follow, today I’m a new person because a lot of stress has been lifted off and I can function. Thank you again for your professional support, excellent work, and always going the extra mile

I have had the opportunity to have Daniel Char address my personal banking needs. I was impressed with his communication skills, professionalism and follow-through with any of my requests and concerns. The service that he provided to myself was exceptional and I would recommend Daniel to both present and future clients.
