- A minimum down payment of 5% for homes valued less than $1,000,000 or 20% for homes of greater value
- A maximum amortization period of 25 years for mortgages with down payments less than 20% or 35 years for mortgages with greater down payments.
- The mandatory purchase of mortgage default insurance, or CMHC insurance, for mortgages with down payments from 5% to 20%. For more information, see Ratehub.ca’s CMHC insurance page.
