ABOUT US

Mortgage Wars has been helping Canadians with their mortgage financing needs since 2012. The mortgage landscape in Canada changed significantly in late 2017 and early 2018 as federal regulators tightened mortgage rules to help slow down the drastic increase in property values in most major Canadian cities. In response, Mortgagewars.ca evolved and changed its focus to alternative lending and private mortgages to ensure Canadian homeowners continue to have an opportunity to qualify for home financing/refinancing.

In early 2020, Mortgage Wars Inc., joined the Pineapple Network (formerly Capital Lending Centre), Brokerage# 12830.  Pineapple is the fastest growing mortgage brokerage in Canada.  This move gave Mortgage Wars access to 'top tier' status with all major lenders.  As we focus primarily on alternative lending, we have developed the expertise to give you superior advice compared to other regular brokers who does not focus on this niche market. We have access to multiple alternative and private mortgage lenders who gives us priority in their approval process as we have built great relationships with them.
