CDIC — The Canada Deposit
Insurance Corporation (CDIC) is a federal Crown corporation
created by Parliament in 1967 to protect your deposits made
with member financial institutions in case of their failure.
CDIC is NOT a bank. CDIC is NOT a private insurance company.
CDIC helps keep Canada’s financial system strong. We work
for Canadians—by insuring their savings in case a bank or
other CDIC member institution fails.
•You don’t need to sign up for our insurance.
CDIC deposit insurance is automatic - for eligible deposits
in Canadian dollars at its member institutions.
•You don’t pay for our insurance.
CDIC member institutions fund deposit insurance through
premiums paid on the insured deposits that they hold.
Are YOUR savings insured?
It’s important to know...
Banks and other financial institutions in Canada can fail.
It does not happen often, but it has happened and it could
happen again. If your financial institution is a CDIC member
and it fails and your savings are eligible for CDIC coverage,
you will get up to $100,000 of your savings back. If your
savings are NOT covered, you might lose them.
Your savings are covered…
•If your bank (or the institution you bank with) is a member
We only insure savings if they are at one of our member
•If the accounts or financial products you have are insured
There are insure certain types of savings.

CDIC insures eligible savings
CDIC is a Federal Crown corporation that contributes to the
stability of the Canadian financial system. Protecting
Canadians’ savings is our job. CDIC automatically insures
many types of savings against the failure of a bank or
financial institution that is a CDIC member. However, NOT
all savings are insured and CDIC deposit insurance does not
protect against fraud, theft or scam.
