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 insurable category at each member institution. 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 entirely funded by premiums assessed on its member institutions and does not receive federal tax dollars. As at April 30, 2012, CDIC insured $645 billion in deposits at its member institutions.
