We updated the login page for Canvas (also the SAM login page) on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.  This update might require you to log out of the system and log back in.  If you have bookmarked the Canvas page, please update your bookmarks by accessing the Access RBC Canvas button listed below.  When you log into Canvas, it will prompt you for an alternate email address (other than your RBC email address).  This will allow you to unlock/reset passwords via one-time use passcodes (OTPs) that will be emailed to the alternate email address.  Please let us know if you need assistance:
