That's correct: $5 per debit except for one ATM cash withdrawal each month and any self-serve transfers to another RBC Royal Bank personal account in the same name.
The RBC High Interest eSavings account is for people who have another less expensive RBC personal bank account to transfer to for the debits or who don't mind paying $5 for each debit.
