Mortgages in Canada are often calculated differently, so make sure you use an appropriate Canadian mortgage calculator. This is a spreadsheet, which is very easy to use, and will show you how much you are paying in interest/principal, with each payment.
Credit Card Calculator
It is very common for many borrowers to consolidate their credit cards into a mortgage. Credit cards, if used improperly, can be onerous. Take a look at this simple calculator, to see how long it will take you to pay off your cards.

Average Mortgage Rate Calculator
Have you ever wondered why someone would take a 2nd mortgage at 10%? This calculator will quickly compute the average interest rate between two mortgages.
It is very common for people (at various stages in life) to no longer be eligible for conventional financing, even with their existing mortgage lenders. It is often cheaper to pay 10% on a small second mortgage, rather than "break" the first mortgage, and pay the penalty, just to increase it by a small amount; and/or simply pay it out entirely, and get a higher rate on the whole amount.
Note: Make sure you input the same type of mortgage rates, i.e. if you are debating taking a 2nd mortgage at 10% (calculated monthly), and a first mortgage of 3% (calculated semi-annually), convert them both to the same, so you are comparing "apples to apples".
