How to Find Canadian Bank Numbers

Running a small business means dealing with day-to-day banking. A bank’s “number” is the basic information you need to transfer funds to an account or link your accounts to your accounting software. The number is divided in three sections: institution code, transit number, and branch number. If you have a check, the numbers are listed at the bottom, in the center. Otherwise, your account opening documents have them, or you can go online to a bank’s website and find them. Here are the institution codes for Canada’s largest banks:

  • BMO: 001
  • CIBC: 010
  • Desjardins: 815
  • HSBC: 016
  • Laurentian Bank: 039
  • National Bank: 006
  • RBC: 003
  • Scotiabank: 002
  • Tangerine: 614
  • TD Bank: 004
