What is a Financial Institution Number?

A financial institution number is a unique 3-digit number used to identify financial institutions in Canada. This system was established by the Canadian Payments Association (CPA) to facilitate electronic payments and transactions between banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. You’ll use a financial institution number every time you make an electronic fund transfer (EFT), such as setting up direct deposit, pre-authorized depot (PAD), to send or receive a wire transfer.
