Institution Numbers of Canadian Banks


In Canada, each bank corresponds to an Institution Numbers (financial institution number), generally it is a three-digit number.

Each branch also corresponds to a Transit Number (transaction number), which is generally a five-digit number.

When we fill in the bank account information, we usually need to fill in the bank ’s Institution Number and Transit Number, and then add the bank account number.

If you have a bank check (cheque), you can find the above three numbers on the bank check (cheque). If you do not have a check (cheque), you will need to search or contact the bank to obtain the information.
