Bank of Canada Interest Rate Announcement

July 12, 2023

The Bank of Canada raised its overnight rate by 25 basis points to 5 per cent this morning. In the statement accompanying the decision, the Bank noted that the Canadian economy has been stronger than expected but is expected slow as higher interest rate work their way through the economy.  On inflation, the Bank cited the recent easing of inflation to 3.4 per cent but also noted that core inflation continues to run a at 3 to 4 per cent pace and has been more persistent than anticipated.  The Bank now forecasts a return to its 2 per cent target in mid-2025 rather than in 2024.

Home Buyer Rescission Period began January 3, 2023


The new Home Buyer Rescission Period (“HBRP”) is now in force for residential real estate transactions in the province.

 The B.C. government introduced the HBRP, also known as the “cooling-off period,” as a consumer protection measure to give home buyers time to consider whether a purchase is right for them. HBRP gives buyers the right to rescind their offer up to three business days after the offer is accepted. If a buyer changes their mind, they must pay a 0.25% rescission fee to the seller.

Often contracts of purchase and sale contain subject clauses that provide buyers and sellers with an opportunity to perform their due diligence. The right of rescission is separate from any subject…

Bank of Canada Increased Interest Rates Today

Bank of Canada raised its bank rate today to 4.25%.  Read about inflation, GDP (Gross Domestic Product), CPI (Consumer Price Index) ad more in their latest press release HERE My recommendation if you are looking at purchasing or expect to refinancing in the near future is to lock in at  the best short term interest rate available for a year or 2 year term as the interest rate is expected to go down in 2024.  Still amortize your mortgage over 25 or 30 years, but give yourself the opportunity to negotiate with the bank who has already approved you.  Ask them for a lower interest rate when you see the interest rates start to go down again. Also read the fine print of your mortgage.  It…
