“Due to the OSFI-mandated mortgage stress test and higher borrowing costs, it was expected that we would see a shift in market conditions and sales,” says Sorichetti. “Last year at this time we experienced a temporary increase in demand as the market anticipated the upcoming OSFI-stress test at the end of the year.”
