CMHC insurance premium 2.75% 2.00% 1.75% 0.00%

Additional criteria as of July 9th, 2012:

  • The maximum amortization available on an insured mortgage (less than 20% down) is 25 years.
  • Homes sold for more than $1,000,000 do not qualify for CMHC insurance and, therefore, require a down payment of at least 20%.
