This is actually good news for the housing market, BoC will put off another rate hike in March if February numbers is disappointing as well.

I think they decided to hold on the March rates already (practically guaranteed). The feds didn’t touch their rates, so Canada doesn’t have any particular reason to raise rates. Add that to the fact that our economy is not doing as well as many thought, the rates are going to be frozen next time for sure.
