|What does the term BANK PRIME RATE really mean? Use this link to see the current bank prime (After 7 years the Bank of Canada Increased the prime rate from 0.5% to 0.75% on July 13, 2017, which means that the banks increased their lending rates by about the same amount. Thus as of Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 the Overnight Rate is 0.75%)
The Bank Prime Rate is the rate that Canadian banks charge their absolute best customers for loans. Changes in the Bank of Canada prime rate influence changes in other interest rates, including variable interest rate mortgages. The prime rate fluctuates based on economic conditions. Some mortgage companies offer interest rates starting at less than bank prime rate as an incentive to borrow from them! These are known as “SUB PRIME” Mortgages and we know what happened in the US when too many sub-prime mortgages were given out in the mid 2000’s Read more about Sub-Prime Mortgages
