Bank of Canada January 17 2018  Meeting News
The Bank of Canada increased its overnight borrowing rate at its January 17 2018 interest rate meeting.  Next meeting March 7 2018.  Though there is a willingness for a further increase, I would expect the Bank of Canada will prudently wait to see what effects this increase has on our economy.

The Bank of Canada Qualifying Rate is used only to qualify high-ratio insured mortgages.
