Dude, it's a scam.
RBC would have sent you a snail mail, if they were closing your account.

It's a scam but if you really wanted to be sure, just sign into your account at rbcroyalbank.com because apparently they'd deactivate you if you don't log in apparently lol.

I got one yesterday saying "CIBC Security has determined there are security related issues with the security of your CIBC cards. Please login to your CIBC account using the attached secure link". LOL. I don't think so, boys.

So why click on the link?

Also, when you hovered over the link, you should have seen that it did not lead to an RBC site.

Finally, remember to keep your browser updated since there are exploits that can compromise your system just by visiting a site.
