Policy Interest Rate Hikes by BOC in October 2022

Updated: Jan 25, 2023

The Bank of Canada today increased its target for the overnight rate to 3.75%, a half percent increase, following a 0.75 percent increase in the month of September.


The world economy is suffering and because of global inflation reaching close to 8%, we will see these high rates for another 1 to 2 years.


The prime is now 5.95% and all Variable and LOC products will be based on prime, meaning the payments will go up.


All renewals and refinances will take a hit on these high-interest rates including new purchases.


The next announcement will be on 7th Dec 2022
