RRSP Home Buyers' Plan

Jamie David

One great source of funding for your mortgage down payment is a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). The Canadian government's Home Buyers' Plan (HBP) allows first time home buyers to borrow up to $35,000 from their RRSPs for a down payment, tax-free. If you're purchasing with someone who is also a first time home buyer, you can both access $35,000 from your RRSP for a combined total of $70,000. However, since the HBP is considered a loan, it must be repaid within 15 years.

*Maximum withdrawal amounts have been updated to reflect changes made in 2019 - please note this video still uses the old maximum figure.
