Canada Imposes New Mortgage Rules

Canada imposed new curbs on mortgage lending on Monday amid concern about spiralling consumer debt fuelled by high property prices and low interest rates.

Jim Flaherty, finance minister, said that the changes, the third tightening in mortgage rules since mid-2008, were designed to encourage savings and insulate taxpayers from risks associated with consumer debt.
