The immediate boost to the economy from infrastructure stimulus spending is minimal, while the cost for any new jobs it creates can be huge

Should my children withdraw from their RRSPs to buy a house?
1/16/2016 7:03:56 AM
Question from Tony, 65, Calgary: My two children are planning to buy a house. They were preapproved for a mortgage loan of $520,000 at 2.64-per-cent interest, fixed for a term of five years. They are looking at buying a house costing about 600,000. For a down payment, is it advantageous to withdraw all their tax-free savings account and registered retirement savings plan investments to reduce their projected monthly payment of $2,464. It seems they wouldn’t like to touch their TFSA & RRSP investments.
The close: TSX, Dow plummet as oil prices extend relentless dive
1/16/2016 7:00:16 AM

A record losing streak in the loonie, plunging bond yields and about $150-billion wiped out in the stock market has left Canadian investors hanging by a thread. Panic is starting to set in.

“The word fear is finally starting to come up,” Martin Pelletier, managing director and portfolio manager at TriVest Wealth Counsel in Calgary, said. “Clients and people are starting to panic. It’s sinking in, but no one knows what to do.”

1/16/2016 2:32:31 AM

Royal Bank of Canada rates on several of its mortgages are a little higher today. For instance, the special offer five-year fixed mortgage is up one-tenth of a point to 3.04 per cent.

To make sense of the changes, CBC News spoke by phone with Dan Eisner, the CEO of True North Mortgage. He was in Calgary.

Province didn't warn borrowers about problems with mortgage broker
1/16/2016 2:27:27 AM
Dennis Khanna in December, it had been more than a year since they had flagged dozens of violations of Ontario mortgage regulations in a review in the summer of 2014. 

But if you had looked on the Financial Services Commission of Ontario's website anytime before last month, you would see no sign that the province had concerns about the business. Khanna had assured them in fall 2014 all would be proper going forward.

A more extensive follow-up provincial review last fall raised allegations of hundreds more violations in Khanna's file and led to the December suspension.

But in the time between the two investigations and the order suspending his license — more than a year — potential customers may have been unaware there was anything to worry about.


Mortgage broker commissions spark heated debate
1/16/2016 2:26:18 AM

B.C.'s mortgage brokers are up in arms at a proposal by the province's financial institutions regulator to force them to disclose the exact amount of their commissions to clients.

The Financial Institutions Commission (FICOM) claims enhanced conflict-of-interest rules are needed to protect consumers in B.C.'s superheated real estate market.

But the proposal has sparked a fierce outcry from brokers who claim the move will play directly into the hands of banks which would like to portray the industry as a hidden cost to consumers.

"It's an un-level playing field," said Gary Mauris, president of Dominion Lending Centres.


Sean Cooper pays off mortgage in 3 years and earns online hate
1/16/2016 2:24:52 AM

When Sean Cooper burned his mortgage papers after going to extremes to pay off his house in three years, he never imagined it would get folks so fired up.

But after CBC News reported Cooper's story late last year, reader comments flooded the internet, either praising or reviling the 30-year-old's financial achievement.

"What is he going to do next, buy a car and sell one of his kidneys to pay for it?" snarled one reader.

An era of cheap interest rates has helped ignite an escalating and troubling household debt binge. The topic has become such a touchy one it can spark polarized opinions, finger pointing and even contempt.

“The Government’s role in housing is to set and maintain a framework that is equitable, stable and sustainable. The actions taken today prudently address emerging vulnerabilities in certain housing markets, while not overburdening other regions,” Finance Minister Bill Morneau said in a release. “They also rebalance government support for the housing sector to promote long-term stability and balanced economic growth.”
Leading veteran shares advice by Justin da Rosa | 11 Dec 2015

It’s a tough segment, but one that can prove fruitful for brokers willing to put the time into mastering it. But there is one pitfall all eager commercial newbies should avoid, according to one veteran.

“A lot of brokers’ first commercial deal is a storefront with an extra apartment, and most have no trouble with those,” Dale Bilton, president of Dominion Lending Centres Commercial and Residential Mortgages Ltd., tells MortgageBrokerNews.ca. “After that they think they’ve got the philosophy figured out.”
Condo building hits highest share of Canada market since 1971 by | 11 Dec 2015

Construction of multiple units as a share of total new housing starts is at the highest level since 1971, data from Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp. show, as builders in Toronto and Vancouver press ahead with new development.

The condo boom -- fueled in part by affordability issues in Canada’s two priciest markets -- is helping offset a slump in construction of single detached homes across the country.
Contribution limit on tax-free savings account to revert to $5,500 by MBN | 11 Dec 2015
12/11/2015 11:36:22 PM
Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau announced that the Liberal government will roll back the annual contribution limit to $5,500, reversing a move by Conservatives that set the limit at $10,000 in the 2015 budget.
 
Morneau said that the reduction will take effect on January 1, 2016, and that TFSA contributions will be indexed to take into account inflation moving forward, giving investment income some space to grow tax-free.
U.S. and Canadian economies on diverging paths by MBN | 11 Dec 2015
12/11/2015 11:35:10 PM
New currency, commodities, jobs and trade reports and figures released last week have shown signs of an impending major bifurcation between the U.S. and Canadian economies, analysts said.
 
In the event of such a divergence, experts warned, Canada will bear the brunt of the effects as the smaller partner – a stark contrast to the situation around six years ago, when the U.S. economy was reeling from the recession and it had to lean on Canada to fulfill its demand for oil, iron, and copper.

“On the mortgage-side, we have benefitted already,” Brian Matthey, broker owner of Verico The Mortgage Professionals and a CFF Centre operator, told MortgageBrokerNews.ca. “Home Trust has always supported the industry and whatever Gerry (Soloway) says he will do, he will do; he has an excellent track record.”
Suspicious transactions tied to foreign buyers by Justin da Rosa | 10 Dec 2015

Vancouver-based banks reported more suspicious applications coming from mainland China than any other country.

Banks are required to report any suspicious activity to the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FinTRAC), and the Globe and Mail received that data through an access of information act. It shows that Vancouver banks reported suspicious transactions originating from mainland China 17 times more often than transactions originating from any other country.
Wealthy parents buying kids’ homes outright
12/11/2015 11:31:17 PM
The number of U.K. first-time homebuyers who step on to the housing ladder mortgage-free has tripled since the financial crisis, largely thanks to wealthy parents paying the entire cost of a home.

Some 19,000 people bought their first homes outright in the past year, according to research by Hamptons, the estate agent, illustrating the growing reliance on outside help in enabling people to become homeowners.
Homes aren't great investments. Buy a REIT instead: Gadfly by | 10 Dec 2015
12/11/2015 11:26:27 PM
Jason Zweig recently suggested that homeowners make far less money selling their houses than they believe. He cites Yale University economist Robert Shiller's data, which finds that “real estate generally keeps pace with inflation but seldom offers any return premium above that.”

Homes have done a bit better than that, but not by much. The S&P/Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index, which measures the changes in value of single-family homes, has grown at a real rate of 1.1 percent annually since 1975. In reality, even this pittance overstates homeowners’ fortunes since it doesn’t account for the myriad expenses that also accompany homeownership and eat away at returns.
Experts: Canada housing markets might be poised for another bust
12/11/2015 11:25:21 PM
The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said last month that the Toronto, Regina, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg markets were showing signs of “problematic conditions”.
 
The statement echoed a report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development earlier this year, which noted that Toronto housing and Vancouver real estate are at risk of a sharp decline.
Housing market on shaky ground: expert by Donald Horne | 09 Dec 2015
12/11/2015 11:02:46 PM
“The housing market is on shaky ground here in Canada,” says Dr. Sherry Cooper, chief economist for Dominion Lending Centres. “Actually, I believe the BoC would cut the rate if they could. The bank is concerned about the economic outlook for Canada.”

The Bank of Canada kept its key interest rate unchanged and said the economic recovery is unfolding as expected, with momentum from non-energy exports and the weaker currency helping to contain the damage from lower oil prices.
Canada has tools beyond zero rates if needed, Poloz says by MBN | 08 Dec 2015

Policy makers still have firepower to spur growth even with borrowing costs near zero, Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz said, citing unconventional policies and fiscal stimulus.

While the central bank doesn’t expect another crisis that will force it to resort to such policies, a number of tools are still available, including charging banks for deposits, forward guidance and asset purchases, Poloz said. Fiscal stimulus could be even more effective than monetary policy in extreme circumstances, he said.

As Canada looks to retool its economy after years of relying on the energy sector, Ontario hopes to recapture some of its heft as the country’s economic powerhouse.

Canada’s most populous province is on track to grow about 2 per cent this year, outpacing the projected 1.1-per-cent gross domestic product increase for the country. Rachelle Younglai - ECONOMICS REPORTER

Canada must reshape economy to escape slow-growth future, CIBC CEO says
11/28/2015 5:19:46 AM

To escape a slow-growth future, Canada must urgently transition to an economy that’s focused on advanced skills, high-value products and innovation, says Victor Dodig, chief executive officer of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

With the energy sector “in the dumps” and real estate slowing, it’s time for Canada to get serious about reshaping the economy, Mr. Dodig told The Globe and Mail.

Black Friday barely shifts Canadian shopping habits
11/28/2015 5:16:50 AM

Canadian retailers are putting a lot of effort into promoting Black Friday, but according to Statistics Canada, shoppers aren't likely to have shifted their spending habits.

Retailers are extending shopping hours and offering discounts for Black Friday, the day after American Thanksgiving, and a traditional work day for most Canadians, but only a few retailers are expected to benefit.

China’s slowed economy could have 'double impact' on Canada: Morneau
11/28/2015 5:13:35 AM
Experts are warning that China’s slowed economy may push the already-unstable global economy into another recession. A Bloomberg report last week said that Chinese borrowers are taking on “record amounts of debt” to repay interest on their existing financial obligations. Bloomberg cited Hua Chuang Securities Co., which predicts that the amount of loans, bonds and shadow finance arranged to cover interest payments will rise five per cent this year.

Royal Bank of Canada scraps limit on size of newcomer mortgages
11/25/2015 4:21:53 AM

Nov 2 The Royal Bank of Canada scrapped an internal limit on mortgage loan size for immigrants in the spring to tap into surging demand for financing on multi-million dollar houses by newcomers to Vancouver.

Wealthy buyers, mostly from China, are fueling a booming mortgage business in Vancouver, where the median price for a detached home on the desirable west side jumped 31 percent to C$2.87 million ($2.19 million) in the last two years.

 

Canada Mortgage Insurer Warns of Overheating Housing Markets

Rising mortgage rates could put damper on housing market
11/25/2015 4:06:30 AM

Mortgage rates are on the rise in Canada, a trend that could cool the housing market even as the economy struggles to recover from the effects of low oil prices.

Lenders have already begun boosting their mortgage rates from their September lows. Five-year, fixed-rate mortgages, which represent the largest share of Canadian mortgages, have risen by as much as 20 basis points in the past two months as Canadian government bond yields have moved higher. (A basis point is 1/100th of a percentage point.) Variable-rate mortgages are seeing their first sustained increase since 2012.

Oil could hit US$130 as U.S. output 'falls off a cliff': Analyst
11/12/2015 11:03:26 PM

Emad Mostaque has had a profound change of heart on oil prices. The analyst with London-based consultancy Ecstrat says US$130 per barrel crude could be less than a year away for the European benchmark as lower prices drive demand in both emerging and developed markets, while a weakening stream of capex dollars constrains new exploration and production.

“What we are seeing is supply is about to roll over dramatically. Demand is continuing to rise,” he said an in interview with BNN.

Unlike many analysts, he says U.S. shale production is set to decline, and as such won’t provide the necessary stop-gap to supply the increasing appetite in world markets.

Finance minister Morneau plans economic update by year-end
11/12/2015 10:54:48 PM

Canada's Finance Minister Bill Morneau said on Tuesday he intends to deliver an economic and fiscal update before the end of the year, though he did not yet have an exact date.

Morneau said it was not really a surprise that a report released by the country's parliamentary budget watchdog earlier on Tuesday had been somewhat more pessimistic than its previous one, although he said it does not form part of the government's formal analysis.

Canada's coal industry hoping for rebound despite drop in demand
11/12/2015 9:19:48 PM

CALGARY - Coal industry watchers say that while their sector is hurting, the picture isn't as bleak as two reports this week have painted.

Canada's coal export market, which is made up almost entirely of metallurgical coal used in steel making, has taken a major hit in recent years as prices have dropped from more than US$300 a tonne in 2011 to less than US$90 a tonne this quarter because of continued oversupply and slowing demand from China.

The leadership of COS has urged its shareholders to do nothing, accusing Suncor of being opportunistic and exploiting inside information it has about an oilsands project they jointly own.

Tanking commodities could mean dark days for Canadian economy
11/7/2015 9:11:00 PM
In 1929, the true sign of an impending problem for the Canadian economy was not the stock-market crash, but rather the collapsing price of wheat and other commodities on global markets. As primary producers’ incomes shrivelled, the retrenchment rebounded to other sectors of the economy, unemployment grew and a decade of serious depression followed. It had begun on the Winnipeg Grain Exchange, not on Bay or Wall streets.
