Using RRSPs to Help: With the federal government's Home Buyers' Plan, you can use up to $20,000 in RSP savings ($40,000 for a couple) to help finance a down payment on a first home.

Mortgage Basics: Besides the actual type of mortgage you select, there are other important characteristics of your mortgage that determine exactly how much you will pay - both monthly and over the life of your mortgage.
