Pineapple Market Update

Become a more informed mortgage broker alongside our CEO, Shubha Dasgupta. Get timely information on the housing market, mortgage industry and the Canadian economy so you can serve your clients better!




our CEO Shubha Dasgupta kicks off the session with a rate update for both Prime and Alternative Lenders. He discusses the Bank of Canada announcement where the overnight rate was hiked by .50%, bringing the overnight rate to 3.75% and prime to 5.95%.

Did you know that higher rates equal higher returns on savings and investments – helping young people save faster? Rising rates can push down housing prices! Take this opportunity in a purchase slowdown to help clients that are facing debt burdens. Shubha then discussed one of Doug Ford’s bold actions to build 1.5 M homes over 10 years.
