Choose a perfect mortgage designed for you Expand/Collapse

We are pleased to offer a number of mortgage* products and payment options for you to choose from:

  • Our variable rate mortgages are ideal if you want to have your mortgage rate float with the prime interest rate.
  • Our fixed rate mortgages are ideal if you are concerned about future interest rate increases.
  • Our open mortgages let you pay off your mortgage early without penalty, for example, if your house is sold.
  • Our flexible mortgages give you the freedom of revolving credit. Your mortgage balance will fluctuate as you make payments to it, or use funds from it, up to the established credit limit.
  • Our consumer revenue property mortgage helps you invest in a residential income property.
  • Our consumer construction mortgage helps you build the home of your dreams.  Click here Excel Document to view our construction mortgage worksheet which outlines some of the costs involved with the construction of a new home.**

What to know before your appointment Expand/Collapse

  • Checklist
    When applying for a mortgage, your financial advisor will need some documents and information. Here is a mortgage application checklist to help you out.
  • Residential Mortgage Security
    When you borrow money to buy a house, security in the form of real property is required to obtain a mortgage. Learn more.
  • Residential Mortgage Default Insurance
    Legislation limits financial institutions to lend a maximum of 80% of the purchase price (or appraised value) of the property you are purchasing, whichever is less. Should the borrower have less than 20% for a down payment (therefore exceeding the 80% loan to property value maximum) mortgage default insurance must be obtained. Learn more.

Pay your mortgage down faster Expand/Collapse

With our 20/20 pay-down option, you can pay up to 20% of your original mortgage principal each year in addition to increasing your scheduled payments by 20% without penalty. You'll be able to pay off your mortgage faster and save money on interest payments.

20% scheduled payment example:
Let's say you have the following mortgage description:

Mortgage: $200,000
Rate: 2.59%
25 year amortization
Monthly payment= $904.92

You can increase your scheduled payments by 20%.
$904.92 x 20%= $180.98

This means your maximum monthly payment could be $1,085.90

If you pay $1,085.90/month, your mortgage amortization is reduced from 25 years to 19.5 years! Not only do you pay down your mortgage faster but you'll pay less interest.

20% original principal example:
Let's keep the same mortgage details:

$200,000 mortgage over 25 years

You can put up to $40,000 extra on your mortgage per year ($200,000 x 20%=$40,000) over the duration of the mortgage without penalty. Again, you pay down your mortgage faster and save on interest!

If you'd like to take advantage of our 20/20 option, contact us today!
