Northwest Territories mortgage guide

Jamie David

Mortgage calculator – Northwest Territories

There are many different regulations and taxes to take into account when calculating your monthly mortgage payment and mortgage amounts. Many provinces and territories have their own unique mortgage guidelines and fees in addition to the rules laid out by the federal government.

Canadian regulations, taxes, and fees

Mortgage lending rules in Canada include rules on minimum down payment, maximum amortization period, and mortgage default insurance or CMHC insurance. Mortgage rules are set by the federal government to protect home buyers, lenders, and the economy. These regulations are included in the Northwest Territories Mortgage Calculator above, and include:

  • The minimum down payment in Canada is 5% for homes under $1,000,000 or 20% for homes of greater value.
  • The maximum amortization is 25 years for down payments under 20% and 35 years for higher down payments.
  • Mortgage default insurance or CMHC insurance must be purchased for down payments between 5% and less than 20%. Visit’s CMHC insurance page for more details.
