In order to open an account, you must be a resident of Canada and be at least 12 years of age. Unfortunately, we can't accept applications from residents of Quebec at this time.To Apply For An Account, You'll Need:
- Your Social Insurance Number (SIN - We need your SIN because Canada Revenue Agency requires that we include it on any tax receipts we send to you.)
- A cheque from one of your own accounts to deposit. Details around this will follow in the instruction kit you'll receive from us. If you are applying for a joint account, you'll need to send a joint cheque with both your signatures, or, you can complete and mail in two separate cheques, one from each of you.
- To comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations, we are required to confirm your identity and the identity of any joint account holders, using two separate sources, prior to opening your account. In order to do this, we will use information that we request of you, such as your pre-printed cheque, and information we obtain from a third party, such as the information on file at a consumer reporting agency. If we are unable to verify your identity using both sources, we may be required (per AML regulations) to decline your application.
What happens next?
Once we receive your application, we'll mail an instruction package to you - you should receive it within 10 days. The instruction package will outline next steps; including details on how to get back to us with the cheque we talked about above.
