Several Canadian banks raised their posted rates for closed, fixed rate mortgages by up to 0.35 of a percentage point, effective Wednesday.

Bank of Nova Scotia , Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Bank of Montreal all raised their five-year closed rate by that amount.

Increases for other mortgages ranging from one year to 10 years ranged from no change to 0.35 of a percentage point.
