Overdraft Protection


When 'life happens' you’ve got peace of mind.

Enjoy peace of mind with overdraft protection

Two convenient options for you

Monthly Fee

  • This option is a good choice if you write a lot of cheques and use your account for several transactions.
  • Protects you from incurring the cost of a returned (NSF) cheque, or the embarrassment of a declined transaction.
  • The monthly fee is only $4 a month (plus interest on overdrawn amounts)

Apply for Monthly Fee option

Pay As You Go

  • This option is a good choice if you don't think you'll have more than an occasional need for coverage.
  • You only pay when you use it - so it's a good option if you don't have a lot of activity on your account.
  • The most you'll ever pay in one day is $5, plus any interest on overdrawn amounts.

What is overdraft protection?

Overdraft protection helps cover occasional shortfalls in your chequing account,
up to your approved overdraft limit even if you have insufficient funds in the
account.* It helps you manage your finances by allowing
you to complete a transaction.
