About CDIC

CDIC is a federal Crown corporation that provides deposit insurance against the loss of deposits with its member institutions in the event of their failure. Eligible deposits are automatically insured, from $1 to $100,000 per person at each member institution. As at April 30, 2008, CDIC insured $512 billion in deposits at its member institutions. CDIC members include Canadian banks, loan companies and trust companies that take deposits, as well as retail associations governed by the Cooperative Credit Associations Act that take deposits. CDIC is funded by premiums assessed on its member institutions and does not receive federal tax dollars.
