CMHC Says It Can Withstand Severe Housing Shock

OTTAWA — Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says stress testing has confirmed its mortgage loan insurance and securitization businesses are able to withstand a severe shock.

The housing agency tested the strength of its businesses against several extreme scenarios.

It looked at the impact of an earthquake in a major urban centre, a steep drop in the price of oil and a U.S.-style housing correction where unemployment rises along with a fall in house prices of 30 per cent.
