Frequently asked questions

​How does ClickSWITCH work?

Input your automatic payment and direct deposit information into the secure ClickSWITCH system and ClickSWITCH will contact your billers to switch your payments over to your new account.

​Can I use this service if I don’t use online banking?

Yes you can! Call our Member Solutions Centre−they’ll be happy to answer any of your questions or they can make an appointment for you at your nearest branch to start your switch.

​What do I need to start my switch?

It’s easy! Gather all of your automated payments and direct deposit information.

A previous account statement is a great way to identify recurring electronic payments and direct deposits that have been set up through your account.

​How long will it take for me to switch over my payments?

Timing varies depending on the type of payment, payee/biller and method needed to switch the payment. Online banking bill payments are switched instantly.

Recurring payments and direct deposits typically take between 7- 10 business days, but can be faster with certain billers. Government-related switches may take longer.
