Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC)

Tangerine Bank is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Bank of Nova Scotia and a member of the CDIC in its own right.

All of our Canadian and US dollar savings products, like our Tangerine Savings Account, Guaranteed Investments (GICs), Business Savings Accounts, Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) and RSP Accounts are eligible for CDIC.

Maximize your coverage

The maximum protection for eligible deposits at Tangerine is $100,000 per name registration (principal and interest combined).

In addition, CDIC provides separate insurance protection for joint deposits ($100,000 collectively, not per individual), deposits held in RRSPs ($100,000, principal and interest combined) and TFSA deposits ($100,000, principal and interest combined). To keep things simple, below are some examples of how multiple Account registrations can help maximize your coverage:

Jane is a Tangerine Client and has the following single registrations with us:

 Total Deposits$300,000
 Amount Insured$300,000


Single registration Accounts are eligible for CDIC insurance up to $100,000. Note that Jane's RSP Savings Account counts towards another $100,000 in coverage and her TFSA Account is also covered for $100,000. All of Jane's Accounts are insured with CDIC in this example.

John and Mary provide another example of Tangerine Clients with the following single Accounts, RSP Accounts as well as joint Accounts with us:

Single Account registrations are eligible for CDIC insurance up to $100,000. Joint Accounts are also covered for up to $100,000 (collectively with the same name registrations, not per individual). So, in this example, John and Mary have 100% insurance coverage with CDIC. All amounts include principal and interest.
