Market Leaders

From its inception in 1987, Computershare, through its predecessor companies, has served as the exclusive central payor and transfer agent (CPTA) for the National Housing act's (NHA) mortgage-backed securities program — the only such program in Canada. We have since issued over 53,000 mortgage pools in Canada over the lifetime of the program.

With a securitized portfolio of more than CAD $823 billion of mortgage assets under custody and over CAD $2.0 trillion in outstanding debt under administration in Canada, Computershare has an unparalleled experience base for trustee and agency services in the Canadian securitization market.

With a warehouse of more than 250,000 mortgages valued at over CAD $170 billion, Computershare is the largest Title Custodian service provider in the Canadian MBS industry.
