Qualification in the CMHC’s MLI SELECT Program

Our mission was to secure the best possible refinancing to release maximum equity withdrawal. The borrower group, with several construction projects underway, had the opportunity to inject funds into their projects to create new housing units. To achieve this, we qualified the building in the CMHC’s MLI SELECT program to obtain the best financing parameters. The building recently qualified for the MLI Select program with a score of 50 points in affordability, thus committing for a ten-year period. The building meets CMHC standards for affordable rent. The diversity of the units allows for the optimization of the project’s profitability without compromising the growth of other apartments. To participate in the MLI Select program, twenty-nine of the seventy-two apartments were qualified for affordable rents. We had to choose wisely not to compromise the asset’s profitability.
