Canadian Financial Institution Numbers for All Banks in 2022

What is a Financial Institution Number?

Around the globe, every bank or financial institution has a unique and specific designation that can precisely identify the bank/institution within the financial industry. In Canada, the Financial Institution Number is used to serve the goal.

Canadian Financial Institution Numbers or more commonly known as bank/institution code is a unique 3 digit number that identifies the bank/institution within the Canadian banking system. The code is typically attached to the entire institution and does not change based on location.

Where to find the Financial Institution Number?

You can easily get the Financial Institution Number of your bank or institution by contacting your bank or any financial professional. The other option is to find it on a Canadian cheque. If you have access to a void or personal cheque, you can check the banking institution numbers which is a 3-digit number between your transit and account number. You can also download a pre-filled Direct Deposit form from your bank website (if your bank has this option). Similar to the cheque, this form will have the 3-digit Financial Institution number between transit number and Account number.
