Getting Started

Our safe and secure online application provides 2 options for you to open & activate an account. Select the option that works for you:


How it works:

1. We confirm who you are by verifying the details of an online banking account you have at another Canadian bank.

2. You sign for your new account using a touch-enabled device like a smart phone or tablet.



How it works:

If you do not have a personal chequing or savings account with online banking at another bank, or a touch-enabled device, it's not a problem. You can still start the account open process online and activate at the branch that is most convenient for you. Your branch activation will only take 15 minutes!
