Mortgage Loan Insurance

For a large number of Canadian home buyers - especially first time home buyers - saving enough money for a down payment is the hardest part of becoming a home owner. Saving a down payment of 20% can be extremely difficult for a lot of people.

Mortgage loan insurance enables home buyers to purchase a home with 5% down payment. The amount of the insurance premium depends on the amount borrowed from the lender.

Mortgage loan insurance premiums can be paid in a lump sum or be added to your mortgage and included in your monthly mortgage payment. For more information, talk to your mortgage professional, or contact the following Mortgage Loan Insurance providers:
