RSP loans

Hello, if I apply for an rsp loan will the bank put that money directly in their rsp product or am I free to do with it whatever I want. I want to apply at my cibc bank
Thank you

I heard CIBC just puts it in your account and you can do what you want with the money

Nah i tried. But maybe a shady rep desperate to make a sale even with an employee error.

Or one who doesnt know what they’re doing. Or super lax.
But @ the same time its in their best interest to have the investment. I can’t imagine otherwise. The guy got lucky!

I saw that online post... guy got lucky. I went and asked myself , they said no.

I don't know any bank which would do this since RSP loans are generally at prime which for an unsecured line of credit is one of the best rates that consumers can get.

I got an RSP loan over 20 years ago with TD Canada Trust and I had to use it for one of their products (GIC RSP, DISA RSP, mutual funds RSP, or direct investing RRSP).
