Canada’s lenders strong enough to handle adverse shock: Moody’s | The Star

Canada’s lenders strong enough to handle adverse shock: Moody’s | The Star | Nova Scotia Real Estate | Scoop.it
By DOUG ALEXANDERBloomberg Wed., Aug. 15, 2018 Canada’s largest lenders have boosted their capital enough in the past two years to withstand a 35 per cent decline in housing prices in Ontario and British Columbia and 25 per cent in the rest of the country, according to Moody’s Investors Service. Canada’s six biggest banks and Quebec’s Desjardins Group “incrementally improved” their capital buffers to absorb $14.3 billion in mortgage losses from such an economic shock, which would also include a 10 per cent loss for foreclosure costs, the New York-based ratings company said Wednesday in a report. Losses in Moody’s worst-case scenario have risen from $12.2 billion in 2016 due to a decline in insured home loans and higher mortgage debt from surging home prices in Vancouver and Toronto. The lenders, which include Toronto-Dominion Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Bank of Nova Scotia, have “materially higher” levels of regulatory capital, measured by Common Equity Tier 1 ratio, that “would enable them to absorb marginally higher expected losses in their mortgage exposures,” Moody’s said. The adverse scenario would consume about 70 basis points of regulatory capital for the seven companies — up from 60 basis points two years earlier — though the higher capital strength more than offsets the increased losses, Moody’s said. Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, which has the largest relative exposure to domestic mortgages, would have the biggest drop in regulatory capital among the lenders tested, with its Common Equity Tier 1 ratio dropping 120 basis points to 10 per cent in the stress-test scenario. Bank of Montreal and Desjardins would take the smallest hit, with a half percentage point drop in regulatory capital, the report said. Canadian mortgage debt has increased about 6 per cent a year over the past three years, reaching almost $1.8 trillion at the end of April, with growth “largely due” to significant increases in home prices particularly in Toronto and Vancouver, Moody’s said in its report. Almost half of domestic banking assets are home loans. Still, residential credit quality remains “strong,” Moody’s said, adding that an easing debt burden and a strong employment levels are “positive signals.”

Protected Lands New | Mining Association of Nova Scotia

Protected Lands New | Mining Association of Nova Scotia | Nova Scotia Real Estate | Scoop.it
A Better Balance: Protect Jobs and Land While Nova Scotia’s mining and quarrying industry supports protecting natural lands for future generations, we also believe the provincial government’s Parks and Protected Areas Plan (the Plan) needs to strike a better balance between protecting land and protecting jobs. Beautiful, natural lands are important, but so are job creation, economic opportunity and government revenues to pay for programs such as health and education. Based on a plan established by the previous provincial government, Nova Scotia has already protected over 12 percent of the province’s land mass and the government intends to bring the total to 13 percent. This would put Nova Scotia in second place nationwide in removing land from economic usage, despite being the second smallest province and a province with some of the biggest economic and demographic challenges. The Mining Association of Nova Scotia has released a report which shows that the Plan is potentially costing Nova Scotians 291-356 jobs by preventing mineral exploration and development in protected areas. That is $16-$19.6 million per year in lost wages and $22-$27 million in foregone economic activity each year. The full report, entitled “A Better Balance: How we can protect jobs and land for Nova Scotians,” is available here. The Plan disproportionately harms some parts of the province. For example, Cape Breton contains 30 percent of the total amount of protected land in Nova Scotia, even though it only contains 19 percent of the province’s land mass. Also, Cape Breton has 154 known mineral occurrences that are overlapped by protected land, which makes it harder, or outright prevents, exploration and development of all that potential wealth. Cumberland County has 51 overlaps between known mineral occurrences and protected land; Colchester has 43 overlaps; and Halifax County has 23. Across the province, 5.5 percent of all known mineral occurrences are overlapped. Mining and quarrying is a large and important industry in Nova Scotia – it employs 5500 people and generates $420 million per year in economic activity. However, it also faces significant challenges, including the loss of over 800 jobs since 2008 and the highest tax/royalty burden of any mining industry in the country. The Plan is adding to the industry’s challenges by shrinking the amount of land available for exploration and development. This reduces our ability to find and develop new deposits; to create new jobs for Nova Scotians; and to contribute more to government revenues. Everything Nova Scotians want – from excellent health and education systems to opportunities for our kids to stay home instead of moving away – ultimately depends on creating jobs. The Mining Association of Nova Scotia proposes a modest policy change that would strike a better balance between protecting both natural lands and economic opportunity. A “land swap” mechanism should be added to the protected lands regulatory regime. This would allow mining and quarrying companies to access protected land by purchasing land of at least equal size and ecological value outside of the protected areas and arranging for it to be protected instead. This would ensure that the total amount of protected land remains the same or grows; the ecological value of protected lands remains the same or grows; and Nova Scotians would continue to be able to access the minerals they need to create jobs and grow the economy. Proposed land swaps would be fully regulated by the provincial government, on a case-by-case basis, to ensure there is a net benefit to the province. The government could even require that the land being swapped in by the company be larger and/or more ecologically valuable than the protected land being swapped out. This creates the potential to not only maintain but improve the government’s portfolio of protected lands, creating a win-win for both the industry and the environment. The provincial government’s support of our industry contributed to a banner year for mining in Nova Scotia. Three major new mines opened in 2017, representing hundreds of new jobs for Nova Scotians and hundreds of millions of dollars in new investment in the province. A little flexibility in the Plan would help us find more new mines and create more jobs for Nova Scotians. While we all appreciate the importance and beauty of natural lands, and everyone wants to protect the environment, we also need to protect jobs and opportunity.
