What you need to know

When you deposit a cheque using mobile deposit, it is important to keep the original cheque for 10 days and then securely destroy it afterward. Here is a bunch of other helpful information on using this new service:

  • There are no transactional fees for using this feature.
  • Most cheques are eligible for mobile deposit.
  • The cheque to be deposited must be in Canadian dollars and must come from a Canadian financial institution.
  • The mobile deposit can be made to a chequing account or a non-registered regular savings account.
  • The rules on hold periods for funds deposited this way are the same as for cheques deposited at the caisse counter.
  • Certain restrictions apply to deposit amounts:
  • Deposits of under $2,000 from financial institutions outside Quebec
  • Limit of $10,000 deposited per day and $100,000 per 30-day period
