Interac e-Transfer

An INTERAC e-Transfer allows you to send money to and receive money from many other financial institutions within Canada. The money you transfer is sent quickly and securely between accounts using existing CIBC electronic payment networks.

In order to send a transfer using your CIBC accounts, you must register for the service within CIBC Online Banking and know the recipient's name and e-mail address. Almost anyone with an e-mail address and a Canadian dollar bank account at a Canadian financial institution can receive a transfer.

For details, or if you need assistance, you can see step by step instructions on how to make an INTERAC e-Transfer online.
