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 Global Certification for use by any Covered Financial Institution that requires a USA PATRIOT Act Certification from CIBC.
