In recent years, the number of non-bank lenders and their share of issued mortgages, has grown. The purpose of this survey is to collect information to analyze trends in the Canadian residential mortgage market. This will fill an important data gap to help the industry and stakeholders understand changes in the market, and support policy decisions related to mortgage lending and financial stability in Canada.
