Sending CAD

It is essential to remember that CAD can only be transferred to a valid Canadian bank account located within Canada.

When adding a CAD recipient, you will need the following information ready:

  • Recipient's full name;
  • 3-digit bank institution number;
  • 5-digit transit number;
  • 7- to 12-digit account number.

Important note: If the first 5 digits of the account number match the transit number, do not include them in the account number field.

If you're having trouble entering your recipient's bank account information for a transfer, here are some tips:

Use a physical check

Banks often omit necessary digits on online statements, so it's best to use a physical check to find the correct information.

Find the transit number

The transit number is the 5-digit number between the ⑆ and ⑉ symbols on a check.

If the transit number is less than five digits, consider adding zeros to the beginning.

Find the account number

The account number follows the transit and institution numbers on a check (it comes after the ⑆ symbol and before the ⑈ symbol).

The account number may be broken up by symbols, you should enter the full number without any dashes, spaces, or additional zeros.

Contact the recipient bank

If you don't have a check, contact the recipient bank directly for assistance.

Please note the following:

The recipient bank may charge a fee for processing incoming transfers. We recommend contacting them directly to confirm if this is the case.
