Your spending account questions answered

As the name suggests, a spending account (also called a chequing account) is used to store your everyday spending money. These are the funds you plan to use for daily transactions, such as paying for groceries or bills.

The big benefit of a spending account is that it keeps your money secure, but easily available. You can access the funds by debit card or make transactions online using digital banking tools. However, this account type typically earns minimal to no interest. So, if you’re looking to grow your money, it’s best to invest it or keep it in a dedicated savings account instead.

There are several easy ways to open a spending account with us:

Yes, we offer a wide range of mobile banking tools. This includes mobile cheque deposit via our app. To learn more about this feature and how to get started, visit our Digital Banking page.

We take your security very seriously. Our banking systems are backed by powerful layers of encryption and state-of-the-art security. We also offer numerous features you can use to add even more protection to your accounts, such as Alerts and 2-Step Verification. To learn more, visit our Security & Privacy page.

Yes, both our spending and savings accounts are 100% guaranteed by the Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation (CUDIC).
