No more waiting for access to your trading account. We’ve streamlined to reduce our processing times so you can quickly open a new account and access it within minutes of completing your application.
Real-time account opening takes advantage of technology that automates key steps in the account-opening process, particularly client ID verification and authentication. Using our real-time identity verification process, you can open a wide variety of individual and joint accounts, including cash, registered retirement savings plans (RRSP) and tax-free savings accounts (TFSA) within minutes (provided the application is complete and in good order and submitted between 8:00 am to 8:30 pm ET).
Please note: To open a margin or option account will take a couple of business days due to additional credit and suitability requirements.
