Mortgage insurance
Mortgage default insurance, commonly referred to as CMHC insurance, protects the lender in the case the borrower defaults on the mortgage. Mortgage default insurance is required on all mortgages with down payments of less than 20%, which are known as high ratio mortgages. Mortgage default insurance is calculated as a percentage applied to your mortgage amount.

Amortization period
    

 
Amortization period
The length of time it will take a homeowner to pay off his/her mortgage. In Canada, the maximum amortization period for insurable mortgages is 25 years.

STEP 2
Choose an amortization period.

Mortgage rate
    

 
Mortgage rate
The rate of interest you will pay on the outstanding balance of your mortgage. This is determined by the mortgage type and mortgage provider. To see how rates vary by type and provider, click on “Select Rate” link on the right. 

 

 STEP 3
Choose a mortgage rate to calculate the corresponding payment.

 

Mortgage type
    

 
Mortgage type
The mortgage type includes the term of the mortgage, between 1-10 years, and the rate type, variable or fixed. The mortgage term is the length of time you commit to the terms, conditions and mortgage rate with a specific lender. The mortgage rate type can be fixed for the duration of the term or variable, fluctuating with the prime rate. Fixed rates are most popular in Canada and represent 66% of all mortgages, according to the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP).
