As we turn the page on yet another tumultuous year headlined by Covid and its emerging variants, we wanted to take a look back at some of the top mortgage-related stories of 2021 and how mortgage rates fared.

Consumers grappled with rising prices in all aspects of the economy, including, of course, in Canadian real estate.
