1 The order, however, must be picked up at the branch or postal outlet.
2 Funds are not immediately withdrawn from the account. Please allow approximately 48 business hours from the time the order is placed.
3 The total amount requested must be rounded off to the nearest 10 unit for all currencies, except for Japanese Yen or Mexican Peso: Japanese Yen (lowest denomination available) = 1,000 JPY, thus amount would be in multiples of 1,000; Mexican Peso (lowest denomination available) = 50 MXN, thus amount would be in multiples of 50.
4 Transaction fees, applicable when converting your Canadian dollars based on the type of currency selected, will be included in the amount debited from your account. For complete details, please read our Guide to Personal Banking Solutions.
