How do I find my institution and/or transit number?
When you send money to and from a Canadian bank account, you will need to have three account details at hand: Financial Institution number (3 digits), Branch Transit Number (5 digits), and Account Number (7-12 digits).
Here are a couple options to help you find this information:
Option 1: Check the bottom of your checkbook
Option 2: Log in to your internet banking
Option 3: Find the Institution number in the list below
Please note: These numbers are accurate to the best of our knowledge, but if you are unsure it is always best to check with your bank. These numbers should only be used to confirm details you already have.
Option 4: Locate your routing number.
Routing number format: 0YYYXXXXX
YYY - institution number
XXXXX - transit number
For example, if the Bank's routing number is 011122334, the institution number is 111, and the transit number is 22334.
