Experts believe that Canadian mortgage rates will soon hit an all-time low of only two-percent. This steep drop is due to the ongoing economic fallout from both the COVID-19 pandemic and the oil market crash. Other factors that may influence these mortgage rates in the future include the implementation of new technology, debt levels, and demographic information. For those that are now in the market for a mortgage, it’s best to purchase a variable-rate mortgage since their is less risk involved.
