Is your money safe at the bank? It’s a question I get asked all the time. Same with is it safe to use an online bank. And that’s thanks to the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC). I’ve personally partnered with CDIC for years because I believe it’s so important to spread awareness about how our deposits are protected at the bank. In other words, if your bank goes bankrupt, you won’t lose any of your money at that bank. And just so you know, there hasn’t been a bank failure in Canada for 25 years. And even when there was a bank failure in Canada, as long as CDIC has been around, not a single Canadian has lost a dime!

To share more about this, so you too can spread the word and feel confident that your money is safe at the bank, I’ve got Peter Routledge, President & CEO of CDIC on the show to explain what CDIC is, how it works, and what you should know.
