Prime rate

6.95% 4

What's the prime rate?

The prime rate is the rate we use to set the interest rates for many of our loans and lines of credit. Our prime rate is based on the Bank of Canada's key interest rate. When the key rate goes up or down, our prime rate generally follows and influences the rate of our credit products.

Versatile Line of Credit interest rate

The interest rate on the loans tied to your Versatile Line of Credit, like the rate on your mortgage, is set when the loan is made.

The variable interest rate on the HELOC is based on our prime rate plus or minus a spread. This spread is based on criteria like your financial history and your project.

Example

Prime rate: 6.70%

Line of credit rate with spread: 7.70%

Personalized rate after financial history assessment: 7.30%

Frequently asked questions

Why do mortgage rates change?

Mortgage rates rise and fall with the Bank of Canada's key rate, which fluctuates with the economic situation in Canada and abroad. The key rate regulates inflation based on economic growth. A hike in the key rate—and consequently in mortgage rates—slows inflation, stimulates savings and stabilizes the economic cycle.

Should I lock in my mortgage rate?

Lock in your mortgage rate to protect yourself from rate hikes while you go through the homebuying process. We'll analyze your financial standing and needs and reserve your rate for a specific period of time. Your rate will be guaranteed as long as your situation and financing stay the same for the agreed-upon period. Otherwise, your rate could be adjusted to reflect the day's interest rate.

Contact us to learn more or lock in your rate.
