Deposits in banks and trust companies to a maximum of $60,000 per depositor when the funds are held in an eligible account with a member of the Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC)
Deposits in credit unions in BC to a maximum of $100,000 per depositor when the funds are held in an eligible account with a member of the Credit Union Deposit Insurance Corporation (CUDIC)The banking system is carefully regulated to protect depositors, so most accounts are very secure compared with those in many other countries.
