CANADA
CANADA: Canada housing agency (CMHC) Q1 financial report: "Given the measures
instituted by the Government of Canada and the deferral of mortgages for those
in need by financial institutions, the impacts on mortgage insurance claims will
not be known for a number of months and is likely to take longer to be fully
realized in our financial results."
-"Our capital position remained strong throughout the first quarter of 2020,
with an excess capital of $3 billion."
-CMHC reiterates earlier annual report statement: "In the event our capital
position is significantly impacted, under the Capital and Dividend Policy
Framework for Financial Crown Corporations, the Government is prepared to inject
capital into CMHC should additional capital be needed to deliver on our public
policy mandate. This was further reinforced on 24 March 2020, when the
Government approved a $10 billion recapitalization limit for CMHC."
