When sending funds to and from your bank account, you will need bank details consisting of three elements, the institution number (3 digits), the transit number (5 digits), and the account number (7 -12 digits).
Here are some tips to help you find this information.
Option 1: Look on your checkbook
If you have your checkbook handy, you can take a look at the illustration below to find out how to find this information.
Option 2: Connect to your online bank
In general, you can find these bank details by logging into your online bank. From this platform, you can easily access your account number, your institution number, and your transit number.
Option 3: Find the institution number in the list below
Please note – We do our best to provide you with accurate and current numbers, but if you are unsure it is always best to check this number with the beneficiary’s bank. We offer these numbers to confirm the contact details already in your possession.
Option 4: Routing number
Sometimes banks provide an institution number and a transit number as a routing number. A routing number for electronic payments contains a 0 (called “leading zero” or “leading zero”), and is made up of a three-digit institution number and a 5-digit transit number.
Routing number format:
YYY – institution number
XXXXX – transit number
For example, if the routing number is 026011242, the institution number is 260 and the transit number is 11242.
