What is a Routing Number?


How long will it take for my CAD to arrive?

We can transfer your CAD the same day, if we receive your payment by 16:15.

(Occasionally we might need you to supply additional documents, which can affect the transfer time. But we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.)


Do you limit the amount of CAD I can send?

No. Some FX companies limit the amount of CAD you can send or receive.
We give you the freedom to send as many Canadian dollars as you like.


How can I pay for my CAD transfer?

You can pay by bank transfer.


In case you were wondering...

What is a Routing Number?

If you send money to or from a Canadian bank account, you’ll need a nine-digit Canadian Routing Number.  


Routing number format: 0YYYXXXXX  
Where YYY= institution number & XXXXX= Routing number. 

For example, if the institution number is 001, and the transit number is 00022, then the bank’s routing number is 000100022. 

What is a SWIFT code?

The SWIFT international payment network is used to send and receive electronic payments (also known as wire payments). It sends payment orders between banks using SWIFT codes, so banks can transfer money quickly, reliably, and securely.

SWIFT code format: AAAA | BB | 11 | 222
AAAA – represents the bank (for example, Barclays is BUKB)
BB – represents the country where the bank is located.
11 – designates location of banks main office.
222 – code for the bank branch.
