CIBC’s USA PATRIOT Act Certification

The USA PATRIOT Act and final rules issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury require a U.S. bank or a U.S. broker-dealer in securities (a “Covered Financial Institution”) to obtain certain information from any foreign banks for which they maintain correspondent accounts in the United States. As permitted by the final rules, CIBC has prepared a Certification for use by any Covered Financial Institution that requires a USA PATRIOT Act certification from CIBC.

Please use the Certification instead of requesting an individual certification from CIBC. If the particular CIBC entity that maintains a correspondent account with your institution is not listed in our Certification, or if you have any questions about the Certification, please contact CIBC by e-mail at Mailbox.CIBCAML@cibc.comOpens your email app..
