After the Bank of Canada increased its key interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point to 1.75%, the big four banks across the country are raising their prime rates.

The Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Montreal, CIBC, and TD Canada Trust are all raising their prime lending rates by a quarter of a percentage point to 3.95% from 3.7%.
