Information you’ll need for a bank transfer to Canada

In order to make an international payment to Canada, you will need to provide the following details for your recipient and their bank account:

  • Canadian Branch Code (also known as a routing number)
  • Account Number
  • BIC / SWIFT code

The Canadian Branch Code is often referred to as a routing number, and contains 8 digits, the first 3 a digit institution number that identifies the bank/financial institution. The last 5 digits are used to identify the location of the bank/financial institution in Canada. This information can be obtained from the recipient of your payment, or by contacting your bank prior to making the transaction.

A BIC / SWIFT code is also used when sending money to Canada, if it is made through the SWIFT system, which all overseas payments from the UK are. For a full guide on BIC (SWIFT) codes, read our in-depth guide.

 

Get the most out of your account

  • Load funds onto a red explorer card with moneycorp. The card can hold up to 10 different currencies, helping to hold all of your funds in one handy place, while we won’t charge you to withdraw or spend any of these currencies when using your card abroad.
  • From your online account, you can track the exchange rate and set a helpful currency rate alert. This means that if the GBP to CAD rate is at a level you are happy with, we will notify you via email and/or SMS.
