Home Buyer’s Plan (HBP) – The Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP) allows you to withdraw up to $20,000 from RRSPs to buy or build a qualifying home for yourself (as a first-time home buyer) or for someone who is related to you and is disabled. You may still be considered a first-time home buyer if you own a rental property or if you have not recently owned a home.

Only the individual who is entitled to receive payments from the RRSP (the annuitant) can withdraw funds from an RRSP. You can make withdrawals from more than one RRSP as long as you are the annuitant (plan owner) of each RRSP.
