MEMBERCARD®

If you're travelling outside of Canada, let us know!

Your cards and related transactions are constantly monitored to guard against fraudulent and unauthorized activity.

To avoid that inconvenience, simply let us know about your out-of-country travel plans ahead of time and we'll ensure your card doesn't get blocked.

Online Banking

2-Step Verification replaces the use of security questions and answers with dynamically generated one-time verification codes. The codes are sent by SMS text message or by email to a mobile phone number or an email address.

When logging in to online banking members will be presented with an Enable 2-Step Verification enrollment screen. This screen will briefly describe what 2-Step Verification is and allows them to register a mobile phone number or an email address where one-time verification codes will be sent during step-up authentications.

There will be a brief period where members are given the option of selecting Not Now on the enrollment screen. Selecting the option to not enroll now lets the member continue with the security questions for a period of time.

Once a member has entered a mobile phone number or an email address, they can select its corresponding Send Code option to submit the registration.

After successfully enrolling in 2-Step Verification, whenever authentication is stepped up for high-risk logins, members are presented with the Enter Your Verification Code verification screen. At this time, a verification code is sent to them through either the mobile phone or email address that they registered during the enrollment process.

Members are allowed three attempts to enter the verification code before the member’s account is locked. For locked accounts, the member should contact their local branch.

Will duplicate verification code notifications be sent both by SMS and email when I have both a mobile phone number and an email address registered under 2-Step Verification?

No. During each stepped-up authentication where a member has multiple notification channels registered, the user will be presented with a Select Verification Method screen where they must select which channel (SMS or email) they wish to be notified through.

How long before a verification code notification expires and is no longer valid?

The verification code is valid for 10 minutes from the time it is generated. If the code is entered and submitted after that time, an error message will be displayed.

Phishing is a cyber criminal's attempt to get sensitive information by pretending to be a legitimate sender.  Some examples include, government organizations, finanical instituations, phone providers, streaming services, online stores and people you know.  Different types of phishing can be smishing (SMS or text messages), spear-phishing (personalized, targeted messages), whaling (messages targeted at executives) and spoofing (forged websites or phone numbers).

It's important to always read (and re-read) the message for anything strange, don't click on suspicious links or download unknown files and never share your password.  It doesn't hurt to be cautious.  If you are suspicious of a message, call the person or organization using their trusted number to double-check if the message is legit.  
If you are a victim of phishing it's important to notify us as soon as possible.  You should also change any affected passwords, enable multi-factor authentification (this adds an extra layer of security to your accounts and devices), check your device for viruses or other malware and report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, or calling 1-888-495-8501.  You may also report the incident to your local police department.
While the use of cheques has been declining with the growth of electronic and card payments, Canada still processes nearly one billion cheques every year.  There are a couple ways cheque fraud can happen.  Criminals can steal cheques, create fraudulent cheques or change the name and/or amount of a legitimate cheque.  
To protect your cheques from being used fraudulently, 
-Keep your cheques in a secure location, 
-Review your bank statment regularly through Online banking
-Shred any cheques for closed accounts
-Consider using electronic payments such as wire payments, direct deposit, pre-authorized payments for bills or 
e-Transfers.  These are all more secure options then cheques.
 
*Important Note*  You only have 48 hours after a fraudulent cheque has cleared your account to submit a return and receive funds back.
Contact us in branch as soon as possible if you believe your personal or financial information has been compromised.  Reaching out to us as soon as possible will help to ensure the security of your account.
