August 6, 2019

OTTAWA  August 6th, 2019 – The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) welcomes Duo Bank of Canada to its membership. Headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, Duo Bank grew out of Walmart Canada Bank, which was founded in 2010.

For more than 50 years, CDIC has protected Canadians’ deposits and promoted financial stability. Eligible deposits at Duo Bank will now be protected up to $100,000 per deposit category.

CDIC is funded by premiums paid by member institutions and does not receive public funds to operate. We have dealt with 43 member failures affecting some two million Canadians. No one has lost a dollar of deposits under CDIC protection.
