RBC will raise mortgage rates Friday

The Royal Bank of Canada says it will increase rates on some mortgages from Friday. Fixed mortgages of between 2 and 5 years will rise by 10 basis points while 5-year loans will rise by 15 per cent. While the federal regulations on mortgage lending have tightened conditions for the banks RBC’s Sean Amato-Gauci said that the increases were due to a number of market conditions. Although RBC is the only lender to have announced the move so far it is expected that others will follow.
