Are Canadian bank accounts insured?

Rounding it up

  • The CDIC, or Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, insures eligible deposits in each of its seven categories for up to $100,000 each.

  • If the bank does fail, the CDIC will work with you and relevant authorities to get you reimbursed.

  • If you have more than $100,000 in one of the eligible categories, you should consider putting that excess elsewhere.
