The Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP) is an attractive solution for assembling a down payment. This federal government program lets you withdraw money from your registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) for the sole purpose of buying or building a home for yourself or for a relative with a disability, whether they are your spouse, child, or other member of your family. The program allows you to withdraw up to $25,000.
