## CMHC when buying brand new

How are CHMC fees calculated when you buy a brand new condo?
Let's say you buy a 300k condo. Since it's brand new, you add the taxes, so final price is let's say 340k taxes in. So basically the purchase price is 340k.
From that, 5% is 17k.
How's the CHMC calculated? is it calculated on 323k (340k-17k=323k) ? And then mortgage will be 323k + CHMC premium ?

Total = 11628
HST = 1511.64
total+tax= 13,139.64
I believe only provincial tax is rated on CMHC premiums (so 8% in Ontario). It's similar to other non-auto insurance, on which PST (yes, not HST) is still charged.
