TORONTO — One of Canada's biggest lenders will be raising rates on several of its mortgages starting Friday.

Royal Bank of Canada says its special offer five-year fixed mortgage goes up one-tenth of a point to 3.04 per cent.

It noted that the changes don't apply to its posted mortgage rates, which are typically higher than special offer rates.
