TORONTO, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Toronto-Dominion Bank TD.TO on Thursday became the first major Canadian lender to raise fixed mortgage rates since March, reversing recent cuts after bond yields jumped over the past week on inflation expectations.
TD Bank raised its Canadian five-year special fixed mortgage rate to 2.29%, according to its web site. It was 1.99% earlier, a spokesperson said.
The rate matches Bank of Nova Scotia's, according to data from RateHub.com, and compares with 2.19% at rivals Royal Bank of Canada RY.TO and Bank of Montreal BMO.TO and 2.24% at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, according to their websites.
Fixed mortgage rates generally move in conjunction with bond yields, while variable rates are tied to the central bank's key policy rate.
