Stress Test Rate: The greater of the minimum qualifying rate and your mortgage rate + 2%

INSURED RATES

INSURABLE RATES

UNINSURED RATES

### Details

Your mortgage qualifying rate (MQR) is the greater of 5.25% (also known as the benchmark minimum qualifying rate), or your mortgage contract rate + 2%. The mortgage qualifying criteria are set by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI). The MQR could have differed between uninsured and insured mortgages in the past. However, since June 2021, they have both used the same mortgage qualifying rate. Prior to this convergence, uninsured mortgages qualified differently than insured mortgages.
