TORONTO, April 1, 2014 /CNW/ - Meridian, Ontario's largest credit union, today announced that it has lowered its five-year fixed mortgage rate to 2.95 per cent APR* -- currently the best five-year fixed mortgage rate on the market today compared to the big five major banks.
"Purchasing a home is one of the biggest financial decisions a family can make," said Bill Whyte, Chief Member Services Officer for Meridian. "This rate shows Meridian's commitment to having our Members' backs by helping them own their homes sooner."
