Are chequing and savings accounts insured?

Rounding it up

  • There are seven types of accounts in Canada, and all insured by the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) up to $100,000 per account.

  • However, CDIC will not cover all deposits in each account. For example, they’ll insure term deposits, but not stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

  • If you’re over the insurable limit in an account, consider moving the excess into a type of account that will work for you.

  • Finally, always remember to bank with a financial institution that’s part of CDIC’s insurance program (like KOHO!).
