Canadians today face many reasons to refinance their mortgage. For example, you may have been working at improving your credit score and now qualify for a new mortgage with a better rate. Refinancing is also a good option to gain access to cash from your home equity to consolidate higher interest debt, make home improvements or help pay for a child’s university education.

Federally regulated guidelines allow home owners to refinance their homes for up to 80% of its current value.  However, in cases of marital breakup it can be possible to refinance for up to 95% in order for one spouse to payout the other their share of the home equity.
