Bank of Canada Holds Mortgage Rate at Current Historic Low

Bank of Canada Holds Mortgage Rate at Current Historic Low

Ottawa and Canada are reopening as we come out of this pandemic. The Bank of Canada announced today that it is maintaining the benchmark rate. The third wave of Covid slowed some economic growth but we can see that recovery is on the horizon. The pandemic has caused structural changes in the economy which continues to make forecasting uncertain.

The Bank has determined that monetary policy is crucial for the recovery of the economy until slack is absorbed and the 2% inflation target is sustainably achieved. They are anticipating reaching this goal in the back half of 2022.

The next rate-setting day is September 8th, 2021.

With rates still HISTORICALLY low, NOW is a great time to get in touch for a review of your mortgage strategy.
