Under the Housing Services Act, Regulation 298, s. 50.(9), the imputed rate of return on non-income-producing assets is based on the first year interest rate of the current year’s November 1st issue of Canada Savings Bonds, rounded down to the nearest whole percentage.
The interest rate for the first year of the current November 1st issue of Canada Savings Bonds, rounded down to the nearest whole percentage, is 0%. The imputed rate of return is 0%.
As part of the income and assets review, households must still provide information to document their non-income-producing assets. However, this will not factor into rent calculations unless the imputed rate of return increases.
- All housing providers must use the rate of 0% to calculate the imputed income from non‑income-producing assets, until further notice.
