Buying a Home

Save your down payment

Here are a few strategies to help you save for and increase your down payment:

  • Set up a regular automatic savings plan
  • Save any special monetary gifts you may receive
  • Use any investments or other collateral you may have1
  • Take advantage of the RSP Home Buyers' Plan

Consider using your RSP to help with your down payment

  • If you’re a first time buyer, the RSP Home Buyers’ Plan lets you withdraw up to $25,000 from your RSPs (up to $50,000 for a couple), subject to certain conditions
  • The withdrawn amount must be repaid within 15 years, subject to a minimum annual repayment that is 1/15 of the amount withdrawn. Find out more about the RSP Home Buyers' Plan (opens new window)
