Lower mortgage rates = bigger savings.

In Canada, there are two main types of mortgage products homebuyers can secure when purchasing a home. These include the conventional mortgage contract and the high ratio mortgage contract. A conventional mortgage refers to a contract where the homeowners have put at least 20% of the home’s price towards a down payment. A high ratio mortgage refers to a contract where the homeowners have put less than 20% of the home’s price towards a down payment. Homebuyers with high ratio mortgages also need to purchase mortgage insurance from the CMHC, which often means that high ratio mortgage rates are slightly lower than conventional mortgage rates. An lender or broker can give you more insight into which type of mortgage might work for you.

How do the best variable rates stack up against the best fixed rates? We compared LR.ca 5-year fixed rate mortgages and LR.ca 5-year variable rate mortgages that Canadians have applied for on our site to find out. Turns out, variable rates are just a bit lower.

About Saskatchewan

Sitting between Alberta and Manitoba, the province of Saskatchewan is located in the heart of the prairies. This is Canada's very own “big sky country,” a place for people who love wide open spaces and friendly people. A province with seemingly endless farmland and vast stretches of wilderness and parks, Saskatchewan is also home to the bustling city of Regina, its capital and commercial centre. The province's economy relies heavily on natural resources, with Saskatchewan producing more than half of Canada's wheat and a major portion of its oil refining capacity.
