How are bank deposits protected?



Our response:

The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) is a federal crown agency that protects Canadian dollars that you deposit with its member financial institutions. If your financial institution goes out of business, CDIC can reimburse you for eligible deposits, up to a set limit. The Deposit Insurance Estimator tool on their website may help you determine if your deposits are protected.
