Get the money you need


Get the cash you need

Draw whatever you need, whenever you need it and pay interest only on what you’ve borrowed.

Enjoy a low interest loan

A HELOC has an interest rate lower than a credit card or a general loan. It’s drawn from the equity on your house, so you can borrow at a lower interest rate.

Discover the tax benefits

The interest you pay on your line of credit mortgage can be tax deductible for home improvements. If you’re borrowing for home renos, a HELOC is the way to go.

Improve your debt

You can use your HELOC funds for anything you like. Because it offers such a low interest rate, it’s perfect for paying off high interest debt.

Questions

Checklist - When applying for a mortgage, we'll need some documents and information. Here’s our mortgage application checklist.

Residential Mortgage Security - When you borrow money to buy a house, we require security in the form of real property.

Residential Mortgage Default Insurance - As per Legislation, we can only lend up to 80% of the purchase price or value of your new home. If you have less than 20% for a down payment, you'll need mortgage default insurance.

A Home Equity Line of Credit might be right for you if…

  • You want to use your house equity to borrow money for a renovation.
  • You want to borrow at an interest rate lower than that of a credit card.
  • You need quick access to funds to pay for some large expenses in a short period of time.

A protection plan provides peace of mind for you and your loved ones. During a tough time, you can focus on your family. We'll focus on protecting you from financial loss.

With an insured mortgage, if you are unable to make your mortgage payments, CUMIS, our reputable insurance company, will make the payments for you. You can apply for a variety of insurance types for your mortgage: disability, life, loss of employment, or critical illness. So, for example, if you lost your job and had loss of employment insurance on your mortgage, CUMIS would make your mortgage payments until you found a job again (up to maximum time noted in your policy). You wouldn’t have to worry about losing your home during such a difficult time.
