3.74% is the best rate in the top 6 results for 10-year fixed mortgages on RateHub.

Anyone getting this rate could, and likely would, end up with many thousands of dollars in savings. It's a gamble, obviously.

nobody can predict anything.. rate can go down to 2.09 ish like couple years ago, or it can go up to 5% over.
imo 3.49% fixed for 10 years sound average.

It's very unlikely for rates to go down in the next few years. Govt is increasing rates and can't stop doing it unless the US stop increasing their rates. If anything, rates should keep increasing steadily for the next few years.

You might be right, even if rates goes up for next 4 years and stays there for 1 year... and it may go down for 4 years....

All speculative. Don't try to time the market. The same would've held true if you locked into a ten year mortgage 10 years ago and you would've lost thousands.

If you can afford it and want peace of mind for the next 10 years, I'd go for a 10year mortgage.
Like SergioAri said, rates are more likely to go up. I really doubt it will go down any time soon.

important info:

1 Available for new BMO owner-occupied mortgages only. Residential owner occupied property with one to four units; rental properties are not eligible. Refinances are not eligible. At least one borrower (or guarantor) must have a minimum credit score of 600. Your Gross Debt Service Ratio must be less than 39% and your Total Debt Service Ratio cannot be higher than 44% based on the higher of the Bank of Canada qualifying rate or the customer`s mortgage rate.
Edit:

Talked with BMO and at first they stated you could port/blend an existing BMO mortgage. Supervisor stepped in and said no way. New mortgages only.

There's something to be said about the certainty of a 10 year term. If you're on the edge of affording your payments and something a bit higher than 3.5% is going to be a big hardship, 10 years gives good piece of mind. I guess it depends on your risk tolerance and whether you think you'll be in your current home for 10 years.

All speculative, but you still have clues to help you see what's the tendency. With the weak loonie and housing market all over the place, gov't can't keep the super low rates that were in place. US is steadily increasing rates too and strengthening the US dollar. Canada can't let the CAD go to crap either. It's all about keeping the right balance. I'm no expert, I must say that, but still with the clues that we have it's possible to say that rates going down is very unlikely at least for the next 2 or 3 years. A crash in the housing market would certainly change that, but then again, who knows when or if that's going to happen.
