Shop around period for Mortgage without multiple Hard inquiries

Is there a specific number of days when one can shop around for mortgage and get pre-approved from multiple lenders without multiple hard inquiries on credit?

I've read that multiple same type of hard inquiries on credit in a specific period of time count as one. However, I do not know the exact number of days. For reference, I live in Vancouver, BC.

Could someone help.

I remember one time i did a mtg app for someone (used to be a personal banker). And someone literally went bank to bank and applied for all of them...
His score got nailed. But all i had to do was explain that to the credit department and approval was okay.

This is what a mortgage broker does for you. Why take multiple hits and do the leg work? These guys already kinda know who would most likely grant your application.

Contact Spin Mortgage seeing your from Vancouver. Im from ON and did everything with them over the phone and emails.
