These are mortgages when you are putting less than 20% down. You will be required to pay a mortgage loan insurance premium from either CMHC, Genworth or Canada Guarantee.
These are mortgages with 20% or more down and meet all the same criteria as insured mortgages, such as Owner Occupied Residence, under $1M in value and a 25-year amortization.
These are mortgages that don’t meet the above criteria such as rental properties, properties over $1M and 30 Year amortization.
