How to Send an Interac E-Transfer
Interac e-Transfer is a simple, convenient, and secure way to send and receive money directly from one bank account to another. All you need is access to online or mobile banking through a participating financial institution, and you can send money to anyone with an email address or mobile phone number and a bank account in Canada — without sharing any personal or financial information. It’s a great alternative to cheques and cash.

How Its Works
- Sign onto your online banking account and select the “Interac e-Transfer” navigation link
- Enter the email address of the person you want to send money to and create a security question that only the person you are sending money to will be able to answer.
- Enter the amount you want to send and the account from which you want to withdraw. The money is withdrawn from your account and an email notification is automatically sent to the email address you provided.
- The other person clicks on a hyperlink in the email and they are taken to their online banking sign on page. After signing on and answering your security question, they can deposit the funds immediately to their account.
