This year’s Canadian Mortgage Awards will have some added excitement as the National Mortgage Broker Network of the Year will be presented for the first time.
Five of Canada’s leading national broker networks were named today as finalists for this new award sponsored by Davis + Henderson.

“Frankly, all of the finalists are winners with the brokers they serve across the country,” said CMP Editor John Tenpenny. “This award is recognition of the job these broker networks do in promoting and reinforcing the idea that all homebuyers should seek advice from a mortgage professional.”
Finalists for the REMIC Commercial Mortgage Broker of the Year, Home Trust Alternative Broker of the Year, Genworth Financial Best Individual Newcomer and Best Newcomer – Mortgage Broker Firm were also named today.
