While in Canada, it is a good idea to have a Canadian bank account. To open an account you must show two pieces of identification such as a student ID card, valid passport or a driver’s license. The bank will also require you to provide your local address in Canada.
Scotiabank is the only bank on campus; however, there are other banks in downtown St. Catharines and at the shopping malls.The “Big 5” banks in Canada are: The Bank of Nova Scotia (also known as Scotiabank), The Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Montreal (BMO), Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) and TD Canada Trust.
