IMF Says Ottawa Should Consider Ending CMHC Mortgage Insurance

A Ottawa should consider phasing out insuring home mortgage through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., the International Monetary Fund said Wednesday.

The advice is contained in the IMF’s latest economic report card on Canada, which projects modest economic growth of 2.25 per cent for the country next year.

Such a recommendation appears to side with Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, who has recently questioned whether the federal government should be in the business of insuring higher-risk mortgages at all.

Calgary Homebuyer Demand ‘Supercharged,’ Says RBC Report

Booming economy sparking housing market

Homebuyer demand in Calgary has been “supercharged” by a booming economy, says the latest Housing Trends and Affordability Report released Wednesday by RBC Economics Research.

The report said modest deterioration in housing affordability in the Calgary area in the third quarter “is likely to be taken in stride by local homebuyers, because they still benefit from some of the lower ownership costs as a share of household income in Canada.”

The report said RBC’s affordability measures increased for all housing categories – between 0.2 percentage points and 0.7 percentage points. But it said the levels continue to be below the national and historical averages.
