Wire Transfers

Sending an outgoing wire?

First, always review the Wire Information Checklist to make sure you have all the information you need to send the wire. Once you have all the required information, visit us at a Coast Capital branch to get started.

What you should know about wire transfers?

You can use our incoming and outgoing money transfer services to wire funds to any financial institution in Canada, the U.S., and most countries overseas.

Potential fees:

  • $20 minimum for all outgoing wire transfers
  • Free incoming wire transfers under $500
  • $10 fee for incoming wires over $500 (plus there might be extra fees charged by intermediary agents along the way).

To trace, recall or amend an outgoing wire, please call our Advice Centre at 1.888.517.7000 or visit a nearby branch. Have the printed Wire Receipt on hand to help speed up the process.

Expecting an incoming wire?

Please Note: Coast Capital’s wire transfer vendor recently changed their correspondent bank to Citibank for incoming foreign wires. See below for updated instructions.

Here’s what you’ll need to provide the sender:

You’ll need to provide your personal information including your full name and address as well as your banking information including 3-digit transit number, 5-digit financial institution number and your 11 or 12-digit Coast Capital account number (PLEASE NOTE: the Institution Number, Transit number and Coast Capital Member Account number must be combined in the Account field). You can find these numbers either on a physical cheque or in Digital Banking.
