Deposit Anywhere™ is a new feature we are offering through our banking app which allows you to deposit cheques from anywhere at any time, simply by taking a photo through the Parama App.

The funds will then be deposited securely into your account however will not be available for immediate use until the cheque has cleared.
There are no fees to use this service!
You can deposit cheques payable in Canadian Dollars and drawn at any Canadian financial institution. They must be payable and endorsed by you, the account holder.
After you have made your deposit you will receive a confirmation. Should there be an issue with the deposit or clearing of the cheque we will contact you.
There is no need to mail or bring the cheque into the branch after you have made your deposit, however it might be useful to mark the cheque with the phrase “deposited via mobile” (without obscuring any material information on the cheque) to confirm you’ve already deposited it. You should keep the cheque in a safe place for a few weeks to ensure that it has cleared properly, after which it should be destroyed.
During the clearing process everything is double checked to ensure the right amount is deposited correctly and securely into your account. If you have any questions about the process please call us during our business hours at 416-207-9239 and we will be happy to help you.
Similar to deposits made at an Exchange® Network ATM or in branch, standard holds on items apply as the funds require time to clear.
