Ratehub.ca is the number one source for comparing mortgage rates in Canada. If you’re a competition junkie like us, you’ll notice that we have a thing for pitting two entities against each other. This time we’ll take a look at Canadian mortgage brokerage webpages to see how usable and effective they are.
The Mortgage Edge has been a part of the Canadian mortgage market for the past 25 years with extensive backgrounds in financial consulting.
Axiom Mortgage Solutions is a competitive mortgage origination service that has relationships with over 50 major banks and financial institutions.
The Mortgage Edge’s layout is very clean and easy to navigate around. You don’t spend a lot of time clicking through pages. The only thing we found a hindrance was their mortgage calculator could only be accessed from the homepage.
As for Axiom Mortgage the homepage welcomes you with four vital pieces of information: the mortgage calculators, the mortgage rates, client testimonials, and the phone number. We like that they include a blog that features more than just mortgage information such as decorating tips and real estate news.

The Mortgage Edge is sweet and to the point, they list their full suite of rates right on the homepage. Axiom on the other hand, greets you with friendly icons and headers covering an abundance of mortgage topics. After looking at both websites we feel that The Mortgage Edge was edged out by Axiom Mortgages since the latter had a very complete webpage encompassing many facets of the mortgage industry.
