It is official the Mortgage Default Insurance premium has increased effective today June 1/2015 for those buyers looking to put down less than 10%

The premium has increased from 3.15% to 3.60%

All 3 insurers; CMHC, GE and Canada Guaranty have adopted the new increase for June 1/2015.



The increase really does not reflect as a huge increase to monthly carrying costs or approval ratios for a majority of home owners.

@ a standard rate of 2.69% 5 year fixed=$1350.77/month (vs the $1344.90 with the lower premium)

A difference of $5.87/month
