There are many different mortgage products to choose from in Canada, so where do you start Most homeowners start with the down payment. Depending on how much you’re able to contribute to the down payment, you’ll be offered either a high ratio or a conventional mortgage. If you put down less than 20% of the purchase price of the home, you’ll be offered a high ratio mortgage contract. This means you’ll also be required to purchase mortgage insurance. If you put down more than 20% of the purchase price, you’ll be offered a conventional mortgage contract and will not be required to purchase mortgage insurance.
