Question about Blended Mortgage and CMHC


Just sold my house for 430k, buying new house for 360k, currently owe 330k on current house.

New house needs some major upgrades and I want to pay some debts, so I want to only put 5% down on new place. I currently have a mortgage that I got 2 years ago with 2.89% interest.

I want to do a blended however, am I able to do one as I will be paying CMHC fee's this time and did not last renewal?

My Mortgage guy said he is not sure if they can do blended because of the CMHC and I would have to cancel existing mortgage, pay the 4 month interest fee and get a new one at a much higher rate.

Any suggestions? Live in Alberta if that matters.
