The RBC Cash Back Mortgage could be ideal if you are a first-time home buyer with a minimum down payment of 5% (a higher down payment percentage may be required depending on the purchase price).

How Much Cash Can You Get?

The amount of money you receive is based on the size and term of your mortgage — up to 7% of its value up to a maximum of $20,000. For illustration purposes, the following chart shows how much you can get based on different cash back levels:

When Do You Get Your Payment?

Your cash back is paid on the date your mortgage is advanced — just in time to help you cover immediate expenses, expected or otherwise! The money you receive is yours to keep so long as you hold your mortgage to the end of its negotiated term.
