Comparing the best mortgage rates in Winnipeg

Keep in mind that the rates listed above may be different from the rate that you're approved for. Things like your down payment, the purchase price, your credit score and the features you want for your mortgage can all affect what mortgage rate you're offered.
One of the best things you can do, no matter what stage of the journey you're in, is to get mortgage rate quotes from multiple lenders. You can get started with the tools at the top of this page. A mortgage broker can also help you find the right mortgage for your needs, as they are licensed specialists with access to multiple lenders and mortgage rates. Better still, they can provide you with expert, personalized advice at no cost to you.
Winnipeg closing costs
When applying for a mortgage in Winnipeg, you'll need to factor in the closing costs that will accompany your property purchase. Most of these will need to be paid in cash, up front, in addition to your down payment, though some of them can be added to your mortgage.
- Manitoba Land Transfer Tax: Manitoba has a province-wide land transfer tax that will need to be paid when you purchase the property. Manitoba land transfer tax rates vary based on the purchase price, ranging from 0% to 2%. You can learn more on our dedicated Manitoba land transfer tax page.
- Mortgage default insurance: If your down payment is less than 20%, you'll have to pay for mortgage default insurance coverage (often known as CMHC insurance) on top of your mortgage. This is typically rolled into your mortgage, but it's important to consider it.
- Sales tax (PST) on CMHC premiums: Manitoba used to charge PST on CMHC premiums. It scrapped the tax in 2020, as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
These are just some of the closing costs you’ll have to pay in Winnipeg. Learn more on our closing costs education centre page.
Winnipeg first-time homebuyer rebates
Some Canadian provinces and cities offer a refund of the land transfer tax for first-time homebuyers, in an attempt to make it easier for first-time homebuyers to get into the real estate market.
Unfortunately, Manitoba does not offer such a rebate. However, Winnipeg's first-time homebuyers are still able to access many of the other first-time homebuyer programs in Canada.
