Your banking questions answered

Like comparing apples to apples, not all chequing accounts are the same. Stride offers a number of different chequing accounts to meet your specific needs. 

If you're looking for an all-inclusive package, our Complete Chequing has no limits on the number of transactions you can complete in a month, including Interac e-Transfers®. This is our most popular chequing account package for a reason.

If you rarely visit a branch and prefer to do all of your transactions digitally, our e-Stride account is likely the one for you. With unlimited digital transactions, including Interac e-Transfers®, this package is a fantastic deal for those who enjoy the convenience of banking with technology.

Our Golden Chequing account is always a great idea for those who are 60 years of age and older. It's a free account that includes 50 free transactions, a paper or electronic statement and personalized cheques. 

To view all of our accounts, view take a look at our Personal Accounts Brochure (PDF).

It depends. Each person's needs are unique. If you plan to use an account daily for debit card purchases, monthly pre-authorized withdrawals or for paying bills, a chequing account is probably the best account for you. If you plan to leave your money alone for a while or have a certain amount of money you need to set aside, a savings account is a great choice. Most people have a combination of the two. A chequing account for day-to-day transactions and a savings account to set money aside for trips, property tax, home insurance or even a new bike. Talk to one of our friendly experts to set up a plan that works for you.

All of our chequing accounts have several points of access. You can visit our Member Experience Associates in branch to complete all types of transactions, including cash withdrawals, bill payments and transfers. Use your debit card to make purchases and ATM withdrawals. Additionally, Stride's mobile app and online banking allow you to Interac e-Transfers® funds to anyone in Canada. 

Don't forget that you can use Deposit Anywhere™ using the Stride Mobile App to deposit your cheques from the comfort of your living room.
