Want to know how you can use your home equity?
You're able to access up to 80% of the current value of the home through mortgage financing. This can be combined with a mortgage and secured/home line of credit (HELOC). 
For example:
$1,000,000 Property Value x 80% = $800,000 Total Mortgage/HELOC Allowed
$500,000 current mortgage balance leaves you with $300,000 available equity to access = $800,000 Total 
An important piece to know if you must be able to qualify to borrow those funds based on your credit, income, and debts.  
You can use your equity funds for such things as:
Home renovations
Paying off debts
Buying another property (i.e. rental or cottage)
Buying a vehicle
Investments (i.e. RRSP, Stock market, TFSA, etc.)
