Did you know that by switching to a free bank account you could save hundreds of dollars?  

An easy switch can put dollars back in your pocket. The average fees for a bank account in Canada are approximately $200* each year! It is likely that you have had the same bank account for many years. Maybe it’s the account your parents set up for you when you got your first paper route or babysitting job. Perhaps it’s the account you and your spouse first opened together. No matter how or when you chose the account, it has probably been withdrawing a fee each month that has been adding up to hundreds of dollars a year.  

It’s time to get more from your bank account. It’s time to go on a family adventure, treat your partner to a romantic dinner or simply grow your savings account. An extra $200 a year can go a long way and add more ease to your life!
