CDIC turns 50 in 2017! Over the course of those 50 years, more than
2 million depositors have been protected from having their insured deposits wiped out by a bank failure.
Were you one of them? Did someone close to you receive a CDIC cheque for their protected deposits? How did CDIC protection support you and your family during such a stressful financial time?
Get in touch with us, and share your story. Your experience could help our efforts to raise awareness of deposit protection and educate Canadians about how it worked then and how it would work now.
