A experiment by TransUnion showed that most Canadians are in a good position to adapt to the increase but the high levels of debt is a sign that even if there is a $50 incline in the monthly expenditures could be a point of angle.


The TransUnion director of research and industry analysis in Canada, Jason Wang said: “Despite rising debt loads for Canadians, our study found that the far majority of consumers will be able to manage an interest rate hike of up to one percent. Our assessment, though, identified a subset of the population of nearly one million borrowers who may face financial challenges when rates rise.”
