Your banking questions answered

Yes, interest is paid on savings accounts. See our Savings Accounts brochure for more information on the interest paid to each account. Additionally, interest rates on the High Interest Savings account can be found here

Any interest earned outside of a registered plan (for example: RRSP, RRIF, TFSA) is subject to tax. A great way to shelter your investments from taxation is by using a TFSA or RRSP, depending on your personal situation. When tax is sheltered, your money grows faster and helps you reach your goals sooner. Contact one of our experts to learn more, today. 

It depends. Each persons 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.
