Bank of Canada April 24 2019 Meeting News

The Bank of Canada maintained its overnight borrowing rate at its April 24 2019 interest rate meeting.  Next meeting is May 29 2019.  The current federal government's changes to Canada's mortgage rules are having a much larger negative impact than this government estimated.  Forecasts for further rate increases in 2019 are now muted and unlikely to occur as the extent of the toll inflicted on the economy and markets are now being realized.

The Bank of Canada Qualifying Rate is used to qualify high-ratio insured mortgages, variable rate mortgages, and for all federally regulated lenders.
