A memo was sent by Finance Canada saying that the increasing of the unfettered mortgage segment is not thought out to be a general jeopardy. A government document that was sent two years ago in November 2015 to the federal minister of finance, Bill Morneau disclosed certain details following a right of entry to Information Act which was appealed by a news reporting firm.
In the memo, it was revealed that the agency is keeping close track of any mortgage creditors that are not regulated. It also said that it currently now has 15 percent of the home loan market; however, it also states that
“On balance, unregulated lenders do not appear to pose systemic concerns at this time and are enhancing competition in the mortgage market.”
An estimate was made by Finance Canada that about 90 percent of the businesses with mortgages that are not regulated will be subject to the rules and procedures of the state’s new regulatory approach.
