How does COVID-19 affect my mortgage?
The COVID-19 pandemic has been financially difficult for many Canadians. If you are having difficulty paying your mortgage because of the impacts of COVID, we encourage you to do the following:
Take advantage of any government relief programs that you may be eligible for.
Contact your lender or your mortgage broker to see if you can get a lower rate on your mortgage. Bank of Canada Rates have gone down significantly over the last couple of years, so if it has been some time since your mortgage was renewed, you might be able to lower your mortgage payment by getting a better rate.
Contact your lender to see if it is possible to have your mortgage payments deferred.
